About the Author

This book is a collaborative effort of four friends in San Francisco, CA. At an age when most folks have long set down their toys for more grown-up pursuits, these guys thought it might be fun to create a few whimsical characters (Jeff Root), bring them to life (Scott Runcorn), and write songs and stories about them (Phil Dumesnil and Asa Sanchez respectively).
