About the Author:

Lacey Alsup Grant began this impromptu story about a squirrel as a story to teach her kids about the creatures that live in their backyard . She grew up in the small town of Winnfield, Louisiana where she learned everything she could about squirrels  from her father. Lacey works as a pediatric speech therapist in Forth Worth, Texas, where she lives with her husband and two young daughters. She and the illustrator, Julie, are lucky enough to be sisters-in-law.
