About the Contributors:
Serena Allen was up late one night with her infant son and wondered, "Who else is awake right now? I can't be the only one who's not sleeping." And once her son was back in her crib she wrote the first lines of this book. Growing up outside of Yosemite, Serena had many close encounters with wildlife. She now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, but she still spends a lot of time hiking and climbing in the great outdoors with her husband and their two children.
Teagan White explores the wonders of the natural world and the friendly creatures who live in it through picture books, stationery, puzzles, fabric, and beyond. Teagan lives in Oregon with their partner and stepdaughter, where they like to ride bikes, adventure in the woods, spy on raccoons in their backyard, and visit seagulls at the beach.
