About the Author

Kristy Lageroos has been creating stories since she could speak, though much of her childhood was
spent acting out other peoples’ stories on stage. She has always felt the need to stand up for friends
who she felt were being treated unfairly (and may have gotten herself in trouble a time or two defending her brother from unfair grownups!) She loves all animals, but the closest she has come to owning a rat
was adopting a really silly hotdog dog. She would, however, really love to befriend a raven someday.
Kristy lives in Maine with her hotdog dog, her husband, a pair of cats, and her ridiculously cool daughter.
