Molly Idle was awarded a Caldecott Honor for "Flora and the Flamingo." She is the creator of Flora and the Penguin, Flora and the Peacocks and the Rex series, which includes "Tea Rex," "Camp Rex" and "Sea Rex." She is also the illustrator of "People Don’t Bite People" and the Zombelina series. Molly lives in Tempe, Arizona with her fabulous family. And when she’s not watching old Technicolor musicals, Molly can be found in her workshop with a cup of espresso in one hand and a pencil in the other, scribbling away, working on her next picture book.
