About Brenda Z. Guiberson

Brenda Z. Guiberson has written many books for children, including "Cactus Hotel," "Spoonbill Swamp," "Moon Bear" and "Disasters." As a child, Brenda never thought she wanted to be a writer-her dreams tended more toward jungle explorer. She graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in English and Fine Art. She started thinking about writing for children when her son went to elementary school, and she volunteered in his class and in the school library. After taking exciting trips that involved a fifty-foot cactus, hungry alligators and sunset-colored spoonbills, she wanted to create books for children that would be like a field trip. Her books are full of well-researched detail, and Brenda sees this research as an adventure-one that allows her to be a jungle explorer at last. She lives in Seattle, Washington.Joan Paley is the illustrator of "Unbeatable Beaks" and several other books for children. She created the collages in "The Emperor Lays an Egg" by cutting shapes from paper that she hand painted. Ms. Paley lives with her husband in North Scituate, Massachusetts.
