About the Author
Beth Ferry reads and writes by the beach in New Jersey, where she dreams of summer all year long. She vividly remembers her first encounter with the ice-cream truck, where the endless choices of scoops and sweets and sprinkles were a dream come true. As a child, Beth had dreams of becoming a vet, owning a hippopotamus, and somehow becoming older than her older sister. Instead, Beth became a children’s book author who’s owned quite a few bulldogs and is now extremely happy that she remained younger than her older sister. You can learn more at www.bethferry.com.
