Steven Kellogg grew up a
fan of picture books.

After drawing his way through
school, he attended the
Rhode Island School of Design,
majoring in illustration.
Winning a fellowship
allowed him a year to study
in Florence, where he stored up experiences and images
upon which he still draws.
he did some graduate work
and teaching at the
American University, and
began submitting

...and realized that
he could continue
“Telling Stories on Paper”

Back in the
United States,
Several awards,
35 years
and more than
100 books later,
he is still doing
just that.
His own Great Dane, Pinkerton,
was stubborn and his puppyhood
foibles inspired Pinkerton, Behave!
Where did his
ideas come
His oldest cat at the time,
Secondhand Rose,
played the part of the
heroine in
A Rose for Pinkerton.
She harassed everyone
and everything.
Kellogg wants the time
readers spend
with his books to be
enjoyable and to
“encourage a lifetime
of association with
pictures, words, and books”
(Kellogg, 2011).
