Matthew Heroux is married to illustrator Wednesday Kirwan. This is his first children’s book, and their first together as a team.
Wednesday Kirwan is the illustrator of Henry’s Bright Idea and Magnolia’s Magnificent Map in the Walnut Animal Society series by Lauren Bradshaw. She also works for the children’s clothing company Tea Collection. The couple lives in Oakland, California.
“Heroux’s simple rhymes are a good bet for beginning readers . . . Kirwan’s painterly illustrations capture a lovely middle-of-the-night feeling with a deep, dark palette.” —Kirkus Reviews
