Frank R. Stockton (1834-1902), born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was one of the best-known humorists in America during the nineteenth century. His gifts as an author of such imaginative children's tales as THE FLOATING PRINCE AND OTHER FAIRY TALES (1881), THE LADY OR THE TIGER? (1884), and THE BEE-MAN OF ORN AND OTHER FANCIFUL TALES (1887), have gained renewed respect in recent years. P.J. Lynch is the illustrator of numerous best-selling picture books, including THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF JONATHAN TOOMEY by Susan Wojciechowski. He has twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal for outstanding illustration in children's books and is a three-time recipient of the Christopher Award. His other books include WHEN JESSIE CAME ACROSS THE SEA by Amy Hest, and GRANDAD'S PRAYERS OF THE EARTH by Douglas Wood. The artist lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his family.
