Horvath grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. She attended the Canadian College of Dance in Toronto and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in New York City. She has taught ballet, waitressed, done temporary typing, and tended babies, but while doing these things she has always also written. Now that her children are in school, she spends the whole day writing, unless she sneaks out to buy groceries, lured away from her desk by the thought of fresh Cheez Whiz. She lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and two daughters.
Marylin Hafner has illustrated numerous children's books. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Good Book19 April 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Kids love this book... hard to get them to read but this one they actually like.
Eccentric5 April 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
This book is perfect for the suggested age range. The author asks for readers' participation in solving a variety of bizarre problems. Where else but this book can you find a cow who makes lemonade instead of milk and waits out a dinner party in a bathtub? I recommend this book to young readers who enjoy humor and a just touch of the fantastical.

great!15 March 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
My 10 year old son needed an AR book for school and he said he liked it. He even got off the computer at night so he could read the book.
Little too silly5 August 2011 - Published on Amazon.com
The Pepins are a unique bunch-there's never a time when something silly isn't happening to them. However, the silliness can be overwhelming at times. Many kids will enjoy the laughs, but just as many will find it a bit tedious.
