Author Biography: Steven Kellogg is the illustrator of over eighty picture books for children, including his own retellings of Johnny Appleseed, Paul Bunyan, which School Library Journal declared “one of Kellogg's best books,” and Pecos Bill, which Booklist called “a read-aloud treat for the family or classroom.” Mr. Kellogg is also the author of Chicken Little, which Booklist said was “one of Kellogg's best efforts to date…a winner every child will like,” and Aster Aardvark's Alphabet Adventures, which Kirkus said was “an ingenious alliterative tour-de-farce, perfect accompaniment to the author's zany illustrations. Just try keeping a straight face as you read this aloud.”
Steven Kellogg lives in Sandy Hook, Connecticut.

My grandson loved this book.
I always adored Steven Kellogg's book as a child. The illustrations are whimsical and entertaining, and the story lines are the same. I highly recommend the Steven Kellogg book for boys and girls of all ages.
This book is about a man who goes on many different adventures. First, he meets a horse and names it lightning, the next thing you know he is squeezing all of the poison out of a snake.
