William Steig was born into a family of artists in New York City in 1907. He attended City College and the National Academy of Design. In 1930, Steig’s work began appearing in The New Yorker, where his drawings have been a popular fixture ever since. He published his first children’s book, Roland the Minstrel Pig in 1968, embarking on a new and very different career. Steig’s books reflect his conviction that children want the security of a devoted family and friends. In 1970, Steig received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. His books also include The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book, Abel’s Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. He has won numerous other international awards, and published collections of drawings for adults.
