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 she’s been writing and drawing books ever since. She’s 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).
