Transcript of Steven Kellogg Author Study

"Telling Stories
on Paper"

Steven Kellogg grew up a
fan of picture books.
Among his favorite
authors were
Beatrix Potter...
N.C. Wyeth.
Before Steven started school, he set a goal to become a children’s author and illustrator and would entertain his sisters for hours with his drawing and storytelling.
He called this...
After drawing his way
through school, he attended
the Rhode Island School
of Design,
majoring in illustration.
he did some graduate work
and teaching at the
American University, and
began submitting
book ideas to publishers.
He quickly
...and realized that
he could continue
“Telling Stories on Paper”
to large audiences.
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.
As Arnold brings home creatures to keep, mom says, “No.” When he brings home a fellow human named Ralph, Mom finally says, “Yes,” and more travel adventures follow.
Poor Pinkerton! Can he EVER learn to behave?
After flunking out of Obedience School, Pinkerton does come in handy and saves the day after his owner remembers how Pinkerton’s mixed-up signals work. Good dog, Pinkerton!
Who gets to rule the roost? Will it be Pinkerton, the Great Dane? Or Rose, the new kitten? Oops, Rose thinks she’s a dog! Pinkerton thinks he’s a cat! Back at the Pet Show, they learn just how wonderful it is to be who they are.
Pinkerton and Rose go along to the woods
to help find birds and mammals. Sadly, every encounter turns into chaos. Pinkerton learns many lessons, including why black-and-white striped foxes should NEVER be cornered!
Convinced that the sky is falling, Chicken Little enlists her friends to help. The conniving Foxy Loxy is delighted as he plots their capture. When a falling Sky Patrol helicopter crashes and Foxy Loxy is captured, they escape, and Chicken Little plants a surprise. What does it turn into when it grows?
Kathy and Louise’s friendship is tested with Louise leaves for the summer. When a new neighbor moves in, Kathy awaits another special arrival. When Louise returns in time for the big surprise, they renew their friendship by sharing the fun, a new puppy!
Raised by wild creatures, Pecos Bill
conquered everything he met and
set up shop, ranching in Texas…but
how did he rescue Slewfoot Sue?
This tall tale is one of the
tallest of them all!
Aster Aardvark does NOT like the alphabet.
Finally achieving an “A”, she leads the way
into multiple alliterative animal adventures
all the way from aerial alphabetical acrobatics
to sleeping “ZZZZZZ”ebras.
A class fieldtrip to the farm turns into one calamity after another. It would seem that class member Jimmy brought along his boa, causing mischief and eating laundry, which led to all the trouble. In the end, Jimmy agrees to a trade-off; his boa for one of the farm’s pigs.
This new version of The Three Pigs comes with a delicious waffle twist, complicated by wolfish greed. When war is declared, Mother Serafina arrives to save the day with her red-hot griddle, and the defeated and syrupy wolf is sent off into exile to the Gulf of Pasta.

• His illustrations capture young readers,
• He brings verse and time-tested folk tales to life,
• He embeds a lesson in every book, and
• His fusion of art and literature exemplify for students how a passion can be turned into a career benefiting thousands upon thousands of young (and older) readers.
• Kellogg wants the time readers spend with his books to be enjoyable and to “encourage a lifetime of association
