Patricia Hegarty is currently the Editorial Director of Caterpillar Books and has written about all kinds of things from trees and bees to ABCs (and she loves to rhyme). Maddie Frost grew up in a quiet town and has always been inspired by simple things, like bugs and pebbles. She loves illustrating images that are very funny and silly as well as images that have a more serious or softer tone. A field day for her is putting characters in nature or in an environment where she can really embrace a particular season for a setting. Maddie lives in New Hampshire near lots of trees and dogs with her fiance and their dog.
