JACOB KRAMER grew up in Providence, RI and studied film-making and writing at Harvard. Like Noodlephant, he loves hunting for mushrooms, eating noodles, and organizing with friends in pursuit of justice. He lives in Somerville, MA, where he is an arts council Fellow.

K-FAI STEELE’s first ambition was not to make books; it was to be a fish. She grew up in a house built in the 1700s with a printing press her father bought from a magician, and shes been writing and drawing books ever since. Shes made drawings for Chibitronics, the Reykjavik Grapevine, MIT Media Lab, School Library Journal, Philly Weekly, the Creativity Labs at Indiana University, and more. K-Fai is the 2018 recipient of the Ezra Jack Keats/Kerlan Collection Memorial Fellowship. Noodlephant, publishing in 2019, is her first book with Enchanted Lion. Other forthcoming titles include A Normal Pig (Balzer+Bray/HarperCollins) and Old MacDonald Had a Baby by Emily Snape with Feiwel & Friends/Macmillan (Fall 2019).


"I love Noodlephant—brilliant & necessary, and the parable we need now." —DAVE EGGERS, Best-Selling Author, Editor, Publisher, and Co-Founder of 826 National

“Kramer tackles political oppression with wit, inventiveness, and a love of good food.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

”It’s about a noodle-loving elephant. It’s about a magic pasta machine. It’s about a community’s response to injustice. It’s 80 pages long. All that is to say it’s unlike any picture book I’ve read in a long time. And it’s great.” —TRAVIS JONKER, 100 Scope Notes

”This book will not only make you crave noodles asap, it’ll make you hungry to go change the world.” —THE READING NINJA
