About the Author

Lin Oliver

Lin Oliver is the author of over 25 funny books for kids. Well, she thinks they're funny, anyway. Seventeen of those titles are in the HANK ZIPZER: WORLD'S BEST UNDER-ACHIEVER series which she writes with Henry Winkler, about a smart boy who happens to have learning challenges. Another four are part of the WHO SHRUNK DANIEL FUNK? series about a boy who shrinks to the size of the fourth toe on his left foot only to find that he has an identical twin mini brother.

Lin is also the co-founder and Executive Director of the SCBWI, a totally impossible-to-pronounce acronym for the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, an international organization of 25,000 people who write, illustrator and produce children's books.

She is the mother of three stupendous sons named Theo, Oliver and Cole. Well, she thinks they're stupendous, anyway. Oh, and their last name is Baker, so no, Oliver is not named Oliver Oliver. She would never do that to her own son!

Lin lives in Los Angeles in a big messy house with a small messy dog named Dexter and her husband, Alan Baker, who is also messy.
