About the Author

Stephen Cosgrove is one of the best-selling children's book authors of all time. His writing career began in 1973. At the time, he was working as the vice president of an investment company. Shopping at bookstores for his three-year-old daughter, he was frustrated by the dearth of fun-to-read picture books that also conveyed positive values. Consequently, he decided to write his own stories. Teaming up with Seattle illustrator Robin James, Cosgrove went on to create four titles that became the foundation of his best-selling Serendipity series, which have sold over 80 million copies worldwide. Since then, he has written more than 300 books, some under his own name and others using pseudonyms, ranging from picture books to young adult thrillers. His complete works have sold close to 100 million copies. Mr. Cosgrove has been honored by Idaho State legislators for his career achievements, and he has won the Coors Lumen Award for family values. He is also the winner of multiple Children's Choice Awards. He lives in Austin, TX. Robin James is a gifted illustrator and a native of the Pacific Northwest. She has loved art and animals all her life and has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. Through the years, she has created a wide variety of artwork, from animal portraits to wildlife paintings, she has illustrated over 75 children's books, and she is published worldwide. She lives in Snohomish, WA.
