Just as Makenzie and Skyler collaborate on building the Starway Flyer and the Seadeep Sub, so the two of us, Gigi Thibodeau and Eric Scott MacDicken, collaboratively dream up our adventures and the worlds in which they occur. Our backgrounds in writing and the arts, and our own twenty-five-year friendship, form the foundation of these books about the power of friendship, courage, and imagination.
