About Steven Weinberg

I write and illustrate kids’ books about mutants fixing climate change, being a middle kid, chainsaws, beards, roller coasters, and dinosaurs. And I paint landscapes and fish, too. Basically all the fun stuff.

My books have been called “Brilliant” by Dave Pilkey, "thrillingly shameless" by the NY Times, “brilliant” by Dav Pilkey, "guaranteed to fuel read aloud energy" by Publisher's Weekly, and "the best thing to ever happen to me", by one very sweet first grader in Washington, DC.

My art has been featured on book covers, beer cans, in magazines like Gray’s Sporting Journal, as well as being exhibited across the country.

I live in the Catskills with my wife Casey Scieszka, our daughters Amina and Felix, our dog Waldo, and our bed and bar called the Spruceton Inn that we all run together in the backyard.

For questions about why I'm in that creek, anything about kids' book appearances, painting trout, comissions, or really anything, please email me!
