About the Illustrator and Coauthor 

Derek Cummiskey has been teaching art for 16 years. Aside from teaching, he also does some original artwork in his spare time, but this is his first opportunity to explore the world of children’s books.  He can personally attest to the fact that losing a sock within the household doesn’t just apply to kids!  And this is what drew Derek to the collaboration with long time friend Neil Pierson.
