Matt Mitter was born long, long ago in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He has written dozens of children's books, mostly in verse. Currently, he works and plays in the Bay Area.
After graduating from Cornwall School of Art & Design in 1982, illustrator Steve Cox went to work for a design firm, creating a variety of licensed characters, in particular those for Roland Rat, a British television series. In 1987 he established Primary Design, which quickly became the approved studio for the illustration and design of many well-known TV characters. After about five years, however, despite his success, he decided that the drawing board was more satisfying than running a company, and he returned to full-time illustration. Steve lives in Bath, England.
