Noah Z. Jones is the illustrator of Not Norman: A Goldfish Story by Kelly Bennett, his first children's book. Of The Monster in the Backpack,he says, "I laughed out loud when I first read Lisa's story. I couldn't wait to start drawing. It was especially fun to create a monster who wasn't scary or mean but caused mischief unintentionally and with such gleeful abandon." Noah currently lives in Los Angeles, California, where he is working on his very own animated series for The Disney Channel and The Cartoon Network.
