About the Author
Rebecca Zickefoose caught the writing bug when she was just eight years old with Cucumber, which she wrote as part of a creative writing class in elementary school. The short tale resurfaced when her sister found the original manuscript packed away in a box at their parents’ house. After some convincing on her sister’s part, Zickefoose decided to illustrate and publish Cucumber as a gift to her niece and nephews as something they could read with their children. Zickefoose was inspired by the giant tortoises at the local zoo for the story of Cucumber. An animal lover, Zickfoose has rescued and loved many animals over the years, and believes that no amount of money could buy the happiness they provide.
