About the Author
STEPHANIE BLAKE’S passion for writing and illustrating began in childhood when she created books for her brothers and sisters as birthday presents. As a child, she also fell in love with the books of Dr. Seuss, Ludwig Bemelmans, and William Steig. After moving to France, she discovered other writers and artists whose work continued to inspire her stories and drawings. The author and illustrator of dozens of books in France, Stephanie Blake’s first American picture book was I Don’t Want to Go to School!, a tale for every child with first-day jitters.
