Author Info
William Steig
William Steig has had two distinct but related careers--first as a cartoonist and second as an author and illustrator of books for children. His career as a cartoonist began at age 17 during the Depression, when he sold cartoons to "The New Yorker" as a means of supporting his family. During this time, he created and sold several woodcarvings, some of which can be found in the historic home of Franklin D. Roosevelt. His career as an illustrator began in 1947, when fellow "New Yorker" cartoonist Bob Kraus created the Windmill Books imprint for Harper & Row. In 1970, Steig's book SYLVESTER AND THE MAGIC PEBBLE won the Caldecott Medal. In 1977 his book THE AMAZING BONE was named as a Caldecott Honor Book. Two of his works have also received Newbery Honors--ABEL'S ISLAND and DOCTOR DE SOTO.
William Steig had two distinct but related careers--the first as a cartoonist and the second as an author and illustrator of children's books. His career as a cartoonist began during the Great Depression when, at the age of 17, he began selling cartoons to "The New Yorker" as a means of supporting his family. His relationship with that magazine, during which they published 1,600 of his drawings and 117 of his cover illustrations, lasted over 70 years. His career in children's books began at age 60. His third offering, SYLVESTER AND THE MAGIC PEBBLE, won the Caldecott Medal while his 1977 book, THE AMAZING BONE, was named a Caldecott Honor Book. Two of his longer works, ABEL'S ISLAND and DOCTOR DE SOTO, were named Newbery Honor Books. In 2002 his picture book SHREK! was expanded and made into a full-length animated film which became the first to win the Academy Award in the category of Best Animated Feature. William Steig died of natural causes as the age of 95.
