About the Author: 

Author David Elliott lives in Warner, NH. He’s very funny on the page and in real life! David is the author of Finn Throws a Fit and This Orq (He Cave Boy).

From his website: "I have worked as a singer in Mexico, an English teacher in Libya, a cucumber-washer in Greece, and a popsicle-stick-maker in Israel. I wanted to be an opera singer, too - one of those huge ones who make the chandeliers shake and windows rattle - so I studied classical voice at a conservatory. There was only one teeny problem: I wasn't very good. Well, that's how it goes. The good news is that I now write for kids. I am very happily married and have one son who is now an adult and about whom I'm absolutely crazy. My wife -- I'm crazy about her, too -- and I live in New Hampshire in that old colonial house in the picture. It's not nearly as spooky as it looks."
