- Author BiographyJason Segel used to have nightmares just like Charlie, and just like Charlie, he's learned that the things we're most afraid of are the things that can make us strong...if we're brave enough to face them.

Sometimes he stars in those movies and sings those songs. You might know him from <i>The Muppets</i> and <i>Despicable Me</i>.

The Sleepwalker Tonic </i>and <i>Nightmares! The Lost Lullaby</i>, available from Delacorte Press. Kirsten Miller grew up in a small town just like Cypress Creek, minus the purple mansion.
