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 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.
