About the Author
Kimberly Wilson was inspired by some of her favorite songs about money—like Barenaked Ladies’ “If I Had $1,000,000” and Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire”—to write this big bucks sequel to A Penny’s Worth (Page Street Kids). She works as a writer full-time and lives in North Carolina with her husband, two daughters, and puppy.
Mark Hoffmann has never pocketed a bill as large as Thousand, but he once had a lot of two-dollar bills, which are the rarest money still being produced in the United States! In addition to illustrating children’s books such as A Penny’s Worth, Mark also works as a college professor. He lives in Salem, New Hampshire.
