About the Author

Sari Karplus

Sari Karplus got her storytelling start as a comedian and filmmaker in Los Angeles. But when an improvised bedtime story to her three young children inspired her first kids' book, she officially joined the ranks of the book writing world. Sari loves to create stories with fun journeys and teachable moments, with a healthy side of humor. Squirrels in Antarctica is Sari's fourth book. Her first three are in the Robotastic! series. "Sari" rhymes with "Mary." Sari loves rhyming.
