About the Author
Mike Wohnoutka (www.mikewohnoutka.com) grew up in Spicer, Minnesota. His dad, an engineer, would bring home reams of paper with highway plans on one side. Mike filled the blank side of the sheets with drawings of race cars, snowmobiles, baseball players, super heroes-everything he was interested in. In high school his art teacher encouraged him to pursue art as a career. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a B.F.A. in illustration. Mike has published books with Random House, Dutton, Clarion, and Holiday House. He enjoys visiting schools and talking to students about illustrating children's books. He currently resides in Minneapolis with his wife and two children.
Praise For Just Like My Papa…
"The warm and reassuring flow of the text coupled with the dramatic painterly scenes of the African landscape come together for a likable tale just in time for Father's Day."—Kirkus Reviews
"The personification of the lions allows the love between father and son to radiate throughout both the text and the luscious full-page colored illustrations. The book's rich, rhythmic language makes it a good candidate for reading aloud to a group. At the same time, its quiet nature makes for a good one-on-one sharing, too."—Booklist
