Laurie Ann Thompson


About the Author

Laurie Ann Thompson grew up in rural northern Wisconsin, where there are more cows than people. A former software engineer, she now writes for children and young adults to help her readers—and herself—make better sense of the world. She is co-author of the Two Truths and a Lie series and author of several award-winning nonfiction books, including the teen how-to guide, Be a Changemaker, and Emmanuel’s Dream, a picture book biography about Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, which won the Schneider Family Book Award and was named an ALA Notable Children’s Book.

Jay Fleck is the illustrator of numerous children’s books, including the indie bestselling Tiny T. Rex series. He lives in Shorewood, Illinois, with his family.
