About the Author

Katie Van Camp is a former dancer who, at the age of eighteen, moved to Shanghai, China, to open a ballet school and teach kindergarten. A few years later she headed to New York to work as an au pair for a little boy named Harry (and his best friend, Horsie), who inspired her to write both Cookiebot! and her first picture book, Harry and Horsie. Katie is now back in Asia, writing and teaching. She currently calls Tokyo home. Lincoln Agnew once tried to build his own robot out of a plastic bucket, a broken microwave, and technology, but sadly its abilities were limited to catching fire. Years later, after giving up on world domination, he attended the Alberta College of Art and Design, where he obtained degrees in both illustration and photography. Lincoln made his debut as a picture book illustrator with Harry and Horsie, for which he won the 2009 Society of Illustrators The Original Art Founder's Award as well as the Marion Vannett Ridgway Award. He is currently rebuilding that robot.
