Aunt Eeebs and Sprout are pseudonyms for a sister and brother team writing and illustrating Dino-Buddies books since 1988.
So - I (...Sprout!) searched for a picture of my sister that I knew would not get me in trouble and this is as close as I would dare. All the other pics had expressions of "'you better not!" 'Eeebs' as she was originally dubbed (by my children), plays a big part in the creative side to make the ideas become refined. When we are "in tune" and "clicking", the cute rhymes and alliterations seem to just appear in our laps. Aunt Eeebs enjoys the signing appearances and loves reading and interfacing with the little ones very much.
Aunt Eeebs offers creative input that makes the adorable Dino-Buddies characters and stories so appealing. Religious and scholarly works are also written by her under another pseudonym as well. Aunt Eeebs graduated top honors Cum Laude – Phi Kappa Phi, all while working and supporting her own way through college.
Always being interested in art and creative projects, Sprout started from a young age developing products. Generally working behind the scenes, the large majority of art, layouts, coordination and marketing falls under Sprout's to-do list. Many aspects of the Dino-Buddies characters and hobbies reflect the ideals and interests of Sprout in his everyday life. Passionate about the entire Dino-Buddies adventure, every day brings an opportunity to just do something positive.
Sprout enjoys the writing and illustrating of the Dino-Buddies characters, along with the creation of the Dino-Buddies books and associated products. Making personal appearances, he also handles all the day to day operations of the business ...publishing, production, artwork, marketing, legal, promotions, website and sales. Sprout does not have any college - but hard work, desire and tenacity seem to make things come together.
