About the Author

Cece Bell is the illustrator of the successful Sock Monkey series from Candlewick and Crankee Doodle by her husband Tom Angleberger. She has a graduate degree in illustration and design from Kent State University. She is hearing impaired.

She lives in an old church in Virginia and works in a new-ish barn right next door. She grew up in Salem, Viriginia and drank a lot of limeades at the Brooks-Byrd Pharmacy downtown. She met her husband, writer Tom Angleberger, at the College of William and Mary, where they were both art majors. Cece went on to get a graduate degree in illustration and design at Kent State University (amazing program!). She has worked as a freelance illustrator for all kinds of nutty projects, but is now a full-time author and illustrator. Cece enjoys moments of hilarity with Tom, along with three three lady dogs and two youngsters.
