About Bill Wallace

See more books from this Author
Bill Wallace grew up in Oklahoma. Along with riding their horses, he and his friends enjoyed campouts and fishing trips. Toasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories to scare one another, and catching fish was always fun.One of the most memorable trips took place on the far side of Lake Lawtonka, at the base of Mt. Scott. He and his best friend, Gary, spent the day shooting shad with bow and arrows, cutting bank poles, and getting ready to go when their dads got home from work.Although there was no "monster" in Lake Lawtonka, one night there "was" a "sneak attack" by a rather large catfish tail. Checking the bank poles was not nearly as fun or "free" after that point, but it was the inspiration for this story.Bill Wallace has won nineteen children's state awards and been awarded the Arrell Gibson Lifetime Achievement Award for Children's Literature from the Oklahoma Center for the Book. David Slonim is the author-illustrator of He Came with the Couch", a 2006 Bright Horizons Top Three Books of the Year selection, and Oh, Ducky". He has illustrated more than fifteen other books, including "Moishe's Miracle" by Laura Krauss Melmed, which was named one of the top ten children's books of 2000 by The New York Times". He lives in Indiana with his wife and their four children.

cats torment dogs, dogs--in turn--attempt to do cats in, cars come out of the ether to crumple the unwary, grudges hold, humans behave in inexplicable ways, and loneliness is bitter.
