Luke Flowers is the illustrator of more than fifty children's books, including the New York Times bestseller A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood with poems by Fred Rogers and Disney's The Muppet Christmas Carol storybook. Growing up, Mister Rogers and Kermit the Frog were two characters that inspired his dream to become an artist, so these were milestone books to bring to life. He is also both the author and illustrator of the Moby Shinobi series. Luke grew up with a love for all things Halloween and classic monster movies, and although he's never been a clown, Luke does enjoy puppeteering, playing banjo, and having wacky adventures with his family. He lives with his wife and three children in Colorado Springs. Learn more about his story, books, and art at
