About the Authors

As the parents of five young children, the authors are not only sisters but also best friends who enjoy writing silly stories that appeal to a younger audience.  Chris and Beth started their journey with Hiccup Hop, their first book inspired by each of their favorite animals, Squirrel and Frog.  Their second book, The Backward Farm was written to entertain kids with another story of how animals can be silly and have as much fun as people!  The authors enjoy traveling to local schools and bookstores to share their stories with children and plan to write many more.
