About the Author: Karen Beaumont is the New York Times bestselling author of I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! illustrated by David Catrow. She is also the recipient of the Geisel Honor for Move Over, Rover! and three ALA Notable Book citations. As a little girl, Karen loved her tan cowboy boots best of all. She now lives near the beach in Capitola, California, and has traded in her boots for flip flops. She has two daughters who love shoes, and a cat named Jake, who runs around barefoot most of the time.

About the illustrator: LeUyen Pham is the New York Times bestselling illustrator of Grace for President, by Kelly DiPucchio, as well as Julianne Moore’s Freckleface Strawberry books and her own Big Sister, Little Sister. She is quite the shoe lover herself, and can be found traipsing about in her Mary Jane shoes or knee high boots in San Francisco, California, where she lives with her family. You can visit her and her shoes at www.leuyenpham.com.
