Illus. in full color by Steve Johnson. "The story of a young girl growing up within the shadows of a great steel mill is eloquently depicted in this insightful, autobiographical picture book. Studded with vibrant imagery, the story subtly emphasizes the loving, caring, respectful relationships within a steelworker's family. Cleanly executed pages, evocative illustrations, and manageable vocabulary make this a unique purchase for a broad age range."—School Library Journal

Anna Egan Smucker drew upon her childhood in Weirton, West Virginia to write her first book for children, NO STAR NIGHTS. Winner of the 1990 International Reading Association Children's Book Award in the younger reader category, this book was followed by OUTSIDE THE WINDOW, a bedtime story illustrated by Stacey Schuett; both books published by Knopf. A HISTORY OF WEST VIRGINIA, a work written for adult new readers, was published in 1997 by the West Virginia Humanities Council. Her poems have been published in "Now and Then," A GATHERING AT THE FORKS, and THE BEST OF WEST VIRGINIA WRITERS. With a B.A. from Carlow College in Pittsburgh, and an M.A. from Michigan State University, she has worked as a teacher, children's librarian, and a writer-in-residence, and has given presentations and conducted writing workshops throughout the country. She lives with her family in Bridgeport, West Virginia.About the Author:
Steve Johnson was born in White Bear Lake, Minnesota and earned a B.F.A. in illustration from the School of Associated Arts in St. Paul, Minnesota. Steve's stunning illustrations have been seen in many magazines, but it was not until Knopf asked him to illustrate No Star Nights in 1989 that he began his career as a children's book illustrator. Since then, Steve and his wife Lou Fancher has collaborated on the illustrations and design on a number of notable children's books. They are currently among the most sought after of children's book artists. Steve and Lou fell in love with the My Many Colored Days manuscript at first sight, seeing in it an unusual opportunity to create something that is at once both childlike and sophisticated.
Steve and Lou currently reside in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
