About the Author

Bibi Dumon Tak is a Dutch author who has written several non-fiction titles for children, beginning with The Cow Book in 2001. In her books, Bibi blends literary technique with fact to produce stories that are both compelling and accurate. Soldier Bear is her first novel based on a historical event. Philip Hopman was born the youngest son of a tulip farmer. But he chose a career in children's books instead of tulips, and he has illustrated more than 150 books since 1988, including Earth to Stella (Clarion) and 22 Orphans (Kane/Miller).
