About the Author
MARK WESTON was inspired to write a children's book about Soichiro Honda after the extensive research he did for his highly praised adult book about pioneering men and women of Japan, called Giants of Japan. A former attorney, journalist, and Jeopardy! champion, Weston is now a full-time writer. He lives with his wife in Sarasota, Florida. Katie Yamasaki is an illustrator, author, muralist, fine artist, and teaching artist. Growing up in the "car culture" of Detroit, Yamasaki had an immediate connection to Honda's story. Yamasaki comes from a huge, diverse family that is full of (among many other things) artists and teachers. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
