Steven Kellogg (born October 26, 1941 in Norwalk, Connecticut) is an American writer and illustrator who has created more than 90 children's books. He is best known for writing books about animals, for which he credits his grandmother .

On November 12, 2011, Steven was given an honorary doctor of humane letters from The University of Findlay. All of his original illustrations were donated to the Mazza Museum of International Art from Picture Books at Findlay. The donation was made possible in part by a $350,000 gift by close friend, Anthony Edwards. More than 2700 works of art were included.[1]

Biography[edit]

He was born in Norwalk, Connecticut to Robert E. and Hilma Marie (Johnson) Kellogg, and his love of writing and illustrating earned him a place at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Steven Kellogg is also the vice-president of the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance a national not-for-profit organization that advocates for literacy, literature, and libraries.[2]

In 1967, Kellogg married Helen Hill. Two years later, he began illustrating books by other authors, and soon afterwards he began publishing books on his own. He lives in Stoney Brook, Connecticut.

Works[edit]

Kellogg's works center around highly detailed pen and ink drawings that are colored to varying degrees. Prominent works include the "Pinkerton" the Great Dane set, the "Million..." titles, and "The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash" and sequels. His first book was published in 1967.
