This is the very first book that Craig and Marissa have authored. They look forward to writing many more books in the future so that they can teach children about our amazing world. Just like Mr. Peppercorn, Craig and Marissa are both teachers-- Craig teaches reading to elementary students in New York and Marissa teaches first graders in New Jersey-- and they love to travel and write. Craig and Marissa met in graduate school at Fordham University when they were studying to become literacy specialists. Even though they don't live close to each other, they still remain good friends, just like Mr. Peppercorn and Marcello. They hope you will enjoy reading about some of the wonderful places in the world. Maybe when you are all grown up, you can visit them, too!
