THE STORY BEHIND THE BOOK
Although Lily doesn’t have any hair
She doesn’t even really care
Because all the Dinos stop and stare
At the T-Rex who sits in a chair
Reed Murphy lives in Wake Forest, NC, with his wife, Beth, his 8-year-old daughter, Lily, and his crazy puppy, Ziggy. Reed grew up in Durham, NC, and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he studied Spanish. He loves spending time with his family, goofing around with Lily, and collecting typewriters. Lily started losing her hair at the
age of three and was eventually diagnosed with alopecia totalis. Ever since, she has had a strong hat game, living carefree and hairfree. Reed is enthralled with Lily’s creative mind, contagious positivity, and imaginative perception of the world. Her question about a dinosaur's butt (or lack thereof) inspired him to write this book.
