About the Author

K-Fai Steele is the author-illustrator of A Normal Pig and the illustrator of several other books. She grew up in a house built in the 1700s with a printing press her father bought from a magician and a vibraphone she played in an old red barn. She was a James Marshall Fellow at the University of Connecticut, a Brown Handler Writer in Residence at the San Francisco Public Library, and an Ezra Jack Keats/Kerlan Memorial Fellow at the University of Minnesota. Born in Charlton, Massachusetts, K-Fai now lives in Lausanne, Switzerland. Like Ozzy, she loves attention. Learn more about her at www.k-faisteele.com.

Reviews

"Steele communicates her message that "normal" is in the eye of the beholder without a whiff of preachiness. Her cartoon pigs, done in watercolor with assured, black outlines, are appealing, and any child who feels they stand out in any way will identify and feel empowered. Delightful and important."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Steele shows how powerful and comforting a wider perspective can be. The watercolor-and-ink cartooning combines a keen eye for domestic and school dynamics with a sweet goofiness that pulls readers through the story, until Pip emerges at the end a wiser and stronger pig."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
