About the Author
Steve Johnson was born in White Bear Lake, Minnesota and earned a B.F.A. in illustration from the School of Associated Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota. Steve's stunning illustrations have been seen in many magazines, but it was not until Knopf asked him to illustrate " No Star Nights "in 1989 that he began his career as a children's book illustrator. Since then, Steve and his wife Lou Fancher has collaborated on the illustrations and design on a number of notable children's books.They are currently among the most sought after of children's book artists. Steve and Lou fell in love with the " My Many Colored Days "manuscript at first sight, seeing in it an unusual opportunity to create something that is at once both childlike and sophisticated.

Steve and Lou currently reside in Minneapolis, Minnesota. "From the Hardcover edition.""
