About the Author
Kashmira Sheth was born in India with Guajarati as her mother tongue and began learning English in fifth grade. She had lived in Bhavnagar and Mumbai before moving to United States when she was seventeen to attend Iowa State University, where she received a BS in microbiology. Before becoming an author Kashmira had many different jobs, including running a dance school and choreographing and performing Indian dances, working in a bakery, and working as a food microbiologist. She is the author of several picture books, chapter books, and middle grade and young adult novels. Taking inspiration from her own life and experiences, much of Kashmira's work centers on Indian culture and features Indian and Indian American characters.

★ "In the current run of titles about older siblings feeding younger ones, this one stands out for its inventive imagery."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
"Action shots of the narrator defending himself against the menacing cat move the story along, while the girl's inability to see her brother's plight adds some comic relief. This is a good story to show how readers can get wrapped up in a book."—School Library Journal
★ "Ebbeler truly knocks it out of the park, gleefully building on Sheth's prose with dynamic perspectives, a realistically detailed (and menacing) tiger, abundant visual hyperbole, and unexpected delights on nearly every page."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
