Aaron Reynolds loves bugs and loves books, so Tiger Moth was a perfect blend of both. Reynolds is the author of several great books for kids, including Chicks and Salsa, which Publishers Weekly called a literary fandango. Reynolds had no idea what fandango meant. After looking it up in the dictionary, he learned the word means playful and silly behavior. Reynolds hopes to write several more fandangos in the future. He lives near Chicago with his wife, two kids, and four insect-obsessed cats.
