My name is Steve Light and I'm a children's book author and illustrator.

"While no Caldecott, to the best of my knowledge, has ever been awarded to a board book, Steve Light’s apparently doing everything in his power to see if he can’t push that envelope a little. Geez, this is a pretty book."

- From Fuse 8 Production by Elizabeth Bird
