About the Authors of Nina in That Makes Me Mad
Hilary Knight is the son of two accomplished artist-writers, Clayton Knight and Katherine Sturges. Hilary Knight came into his own enormous success by illustrating Kay Thompson's Eloise series, which has been a cultural touchstone for generations. He is the author-illustrator of nine children's books and the illustrator of more than 50 others. He has also produced many magazine illustrations, record album covers, and posters for Broadway musicals.
Steven Kroll, who passed away recently, was a beloved and long-time member of the children's book community. He said, "When I'm working on a book, I see the pictures as I write the words. How fortunate that the illustrators of my books have all seen what I've seen and have captured the magic I wish to share."
