Author Bio
John Steptoe
Steptoe's first book, STEVIE, was published when he was 19 years old; it brought him fame as one of the first authors to depict the language of African-American children. In addition to illustrating his own works, Steptoe also provided illustrations for such authors as Arnold Adoff, Lucille Clifton, and Eloise Greenfield. In 1982 he won the Coretta Scott King award for his illustrations for MOTHER CROCODILE. His 1987 illustrations for MUFARO'S BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS: AN AFRICAN TALE earned that book a Caldecott Honor.
