About the Author

Colleen AF Venable says the best thing in the world is collaborating with friends. She spent many years convincing her parents that a sloth is the best pet in the world, but she never got one. Instead she has a pet bunny and five pet fish in a sixty-gallon aquarium. She lives with her animals in Brooklyn, New York.
Industry Reviews
"A best thing, indeed. ...Chan's appealing, cartoon-style watercolor illustrations enhance the humor of the text throughout the picture book and employ a distinct, memorable style. A book to hug close and then share with a friend."--Kirkus Reviews
"Mervin has top billing, but the real star of Venable's semi-metafictional story is the title itself...The repartee...and Chan's cartoon choreographing of the argumentative cast crackle with silly energy."--Publishers Weekly
