Steven Kroll

Steven Kroll (1941-2011) grew up in New York City. In addition to the usual city kid activities of games, baseball, and trips to the candy store, Kroll studied sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art. Appointed editor of his high school literary journal, Kroll discovered an interest in and talent for writing.

After graduating from Harvard University in 1962, he worked as an editor of books for adults in both London, England, and New York City. In the early 1970s, his then-wife, a children's book editor, urged him to try his hand at writing for children, and Kroll reluctantly began what would become a prolific and fulfilling career. He published his first picture book, Is Milton Missing?, in 1975.

Kroll was the author of more than fifty picture books, chapter books, and young adult novels. His work has been translated into French, Spanish, and Japanese.
