About the Author
Jeremy Provost was born in Oconomowoc, a small lake country town in Wisconsin. As a child Jeremy was introduced to Bill Watterson's Calvin and Hobbes, which instantly grounded his desire to become a comic illustrator. After years of being told he couldn't draw in class, Jeremy decided to become a student at Indiana Wesleyan University. While enrolled Jeremy taught under children's illustrator Ron Mazellan. Ron's mentorship and guidance was very influential in Jeremy's own shift of passion toward children's illustration. Jeremy graduated IWU in the summer of 2008 with an illustration degree, and ventured back home. Jeremy has worked on various projects, and now spends his days as an active children's illustrator. His greatest desire is to spark imagination to a younger audience, just as "Calvin and Hobbes" sparked his own as a child. Sally Schnarr was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. As a mother of three and grandmother of five, Sally knows firsthand the excitement of childhood learning. She has been painting and hiding her own creations and watching with amazement at its rapid worldwide growth. She came up with the idea in a dream and brought that dream to life for everyone to enjoy. She chose a local zoo as her setting, where she has spent hours exploring with her son, Michael Jr. A former Xerox sales executive, Sally learned firsthand the ways of the marketplace and understands how to create and market a special product. As a master gardener, she has designed living gardens filled with color and texture. She would photograph her flowers and turn an ordinary note card into a floral bonanza. Sally's personality is contagious, her energy endless, and her dreams are filled nightly with new adventures for Sally the Stone. Embrace the color, texture, giggles, and joy, and join this author on her mission of putting a Sally the Stone in every child's hand.
