About the Author


Author and illustrator Wendell Minor was born on March 17, 1944, in Aurora, IL. From the time he was in the fourth grade, Minor knew he was going to be an artist. He received much encouragement from his family and friends to pursue his love and talent. In 1966, he graduated from Ringling School of Art and Design. In 1968, he began working as an illustrator at an art studio, and two years later became and independent illustrator in his own studio in Greenwich Village, NY. Minor’s search for paying jobs led to him to publishing houses, where he became a book jacket illustrator. Gradually, he transitioned from a cover and jacket artist to a children’s book illustrator. Minor’s interests include painting outdoors and bird watching, and he incorporates these hobbies into his books in the hopes of positively influencing children. He and his wife and business partner, Florence, currently live in Connecticut. Minor is a Past President of the Society of Illustrators and a member of the Hall of Fame committee.
