Sharon Chriscoe loved being a girl scout-and even though a fire truck never visited her campsite, she did enjoy her share of delicious s'mores. She is the author of Race Car Dreams, illustrated by Dave Mottram, Bulldozer Dreams, illustrated by John Joven, and The Sparrow and the Trees, illustrated by Susan Detwiler. Sharon and her family live in Pilot Mountain, NC. Dave Mottram always wanted to be an illustrator. He drew pictures until there was no paper left, then he drew on grocery bags. Nowadays he draws on his daughter's lunch bags and illustrates children's books in Ohio where he lives with his family.
