John Steptoe

Short Biography: John Steptoe (1950-1989) was born in Brooklyn, New York. He studied illustration at the High School of Art and Design in New York City and at Vermont Academy. His first book, Stevie, was published when he was only 18 and was followed by more than a dozen popular picture books. He was inspired to write Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters by a folktale published in 1895. His illustrations are based on the plants and animals of Zimbabwe and on the ruins of an ancient city found there. Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters won both a Caldecott Honor Medal and a Coretta Scott King Award.
