About The Artist

Erik Brooks is the author and illustrator of many books for children, including the 2011 Washington State Book Award winner, Polar Opposites and the CBC/IRA Children’s Choices Award winner, The Practically Perfect Pajamas. His most recent illustrated book, Sea Star Wishes, was selected as the July 2013 “Book of the Month” by US Children’s Poet Laureate, Kenn Nesbitt, and he is currently working on three books for 2015.

From his home in Winthrop, WA, Erik also writes and draws a weekly comic strip for the Methow Valley News, visits schools and libraries around the country, and plays in the woods like a wolverine!
