Matt Haig’s first novel for young readers, Samuel Blink and the Forbidden Forest, won the UK’s Blue Peter Book of the Year Award and the Gold Smarties Award. He is also the author of various adult novels, including The Labrador Pact and The Radleys. Reviewers have called his writing “totally engrossing,” “touching, quirky and macabre,” and “so surprising and strange it vaults into a realm of his own.” His books have been translated into twenty-five languages. He lives in York, England, and assures us he has never, ever been a cat—despite rumors that he was once a rather grumpy ginger tabby named Jeffrey.Stacy Curtis finds it purr-fectly impawsible he’s ever been a cat. He is, however, a cartoonist, illustrator, printmaker, and twin who has illustrated more than twenty-five books for children, including the New York Times bestseller The 7 Habits of Happy Kids. He and his wife, Jann, life in the Chicago area and happily share their home with two dogs, Derby and Inky, and no cats.
