In between travelling, Anne completed Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Education. Anne loves working with children, and became an ESL and French teacher. She is also the mother of four children, but still finds time to read and write. Anne currently lives in Toronto, Ontario, where she works full-time as a teacher-librarian.
Anne is a multi award-winning author of several books for children. Her picturebook Under a Prairie Sky (Orca, 2004) won the Mr. Christie's Book Award in 2003.
Rose Cowles is the illustrator of the award-winning Puppies on Board. She has a big black dog named Rosie. She loves animals and can paint eleven puppies and a dog over and over again so that you can recognize them on every page. "I love painting," she says. "It keeps me happy and that's the best gift I can give to my kids." It's a pretty good gift for everyone else as well! Rose also illustrated The F Team for Orca. She lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
