About the Author and the Illustrator

Franco Bertucci is a music teacher and performer who has been on the road a fair amount and been at home more. He wrote many of these poems while building a house for his young family and discovering, among many other things, that writing poems is quicker than writing songs. Franco lives in an exciting little town on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.

Erwin Dence is a house painter, painting contractor, writer and surfer. He lives in the same exciting little town as Franco but has been there a lot longer. Erwin is one of the reasons Franco can describe the place as exciting. To see more of Erwin's artwork and writing, visit Realsurfers.net, or his blog, "Stuff That Goes On" at ptleader.com.
