About the Author and Illustrators
David Baldacci, the internationally bestselling novelist,

into Fries Alive!, Freddy’s first adventure,
in which he brings his fried-potato friends to life.
There are over 40 million copies of Mr. Baldacci’s
adult books in print worldwide. He is the author of the warmhearted
contemporary classic, The Christmas Train; the critically
acclaimed Wish You Well, which is currently taught
in schools across the country and has been adopted for use
by city, state and national reading programs; and numerous
