About the Author

Story by Thea Feldman; Illustrated by Olga and Aleksey Ivanov; Inspired by George Selden and Garth Williams

GEORGE SELDEN (1929-1989) wrote not only the adventures of Chester, Harry, Tucker, and their friends but also The Genie of Sutton Place, which was one of School Library Journal’s Best Books of the Year.
GARTH WILLIAMS (1912-1996) illustrated all of George Selden’s Chester Cricket books. His other distinguished work includes Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and the Little House books.
THEA FELDMAN is the author of numerous books for children, including Suryia and Roscoe, which she co-authored with Dr. Bhagavan Antle, available in Spring 2011 from Henry Holt BYR.
OLGA and ALEKSEY IVANOV are the illustrators of many children's books, including the Charlotte’s Web beginning readers in which they also replicated the style of Garth Williams.
