Robert Munsch was born in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania. He studied to be a Jesuit priest, but decided to work
with children instead. He taught in a variety of nursery schools
and daycare centers while he earned an M.A. in Early Childhood
Education. In 1975, Munsch and his wife, Ann, moved to Guelph,
Ontario. The Munschs have three children: Julie, Andrew and Tyya
(see them all in Something Good!).
Michael Martchenko has illustrated over 30
books for children and has exhibited his work throughout North
America. He has won numerous awards for design and illustration. He
lives with his wife, Patricia, in Toronto.
