Rebecca O'Connell says, "In eleven years as a librarian, I've led more than 2,000 story times. The rhythm and pacing of a read-aloud got into my head and came out as "The Baby Goes Beep."" Ms. O'Connell lives in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband, son and three cats. Ken Wilson-Max says, "When I first read "The Baby Goes Beep" text, I immediately liked its liveliness and sense of fun. Then I worked out my vision of the baby's day. Mr. Wilson-Max trained as a graphic designer in Zimbabwe, where he was born. He now lives in London, where he illustrates picture books in a variety of formats.
