Deb Pilutti wrote and illustrated Ten Rules of Being a Superhero, Bear and Squirrel Are Friends, and The Secrets of Ninja School, and illustrated Idea Jar by Adam Lehrhaupt. Her inspiration for this book began with a doodle of a rock with a face. It looked like it could be a character, but Deb dismissed it, thinking, Rocks don't DO anything. They just sit there. That would be a boring book. Luckily, she dug a little deeper and Old Rock's story came to life. Deb lives with her husband and their border collie, Wilson, in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Cathy Gendron graduated with a degree in Fine Arts and a serious need to draw. She lives and works in Ann Arbor, Michigan. A teacher for almost 30 years at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, her work has appeared in numerous magazines and newspapers. Visit her at
