. About the Illustrators
: To capture the imagination of youth, Stacy recruited a group of fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-grade artists at her former grade school. The Banting Elementary School Student Illustrators were hand-selected for their creative abilities, and met with Stacy for ten weeks in the spring of 2007. Each student chose his or her favorite animals in the story, decided on their pose and personality, and brought them to life with watercolor pencils.
