About The Author

Molly Bang was born in Princeton, New Jersey, and grew up in Baltimore. She and her siblings spent summers in a scientific community by the ocean where parents worked in the labs and children learned to love the land and sea and mostly to avoid science, not realizing that science had infected them even they we rebelled against it. After studying language and literature in college, Molly became a largely self-taught artist and illustrator of children’s books, her childhood dream.
