As a child, Meghan Marentette loved collecting odds and ends to build miniature worlds for her toys. Later, as a costume designer for film and television, she was assigned to make tiny costumes for stop-motion animation puppets. It was during this job that Meghan conceived of the miniature world of her first novel, The Stowaways, which has been a finalist for the Ann Connor Brimer Award, the CLA Book of the Year for Children Award, and the Monica Hughes Award for Science Fiction and Fantasy. Meghan lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Unlike the other Weedle mice, The Stowaways love to go on adventures - even when it means getting close to humans! But when Rory and his Gran plan to rescue Grampa Stowaway, whom everyone else thinks is dead, the adventure may be far more dangerous than he has bargained for.
