About the author

Chip Street wrote and illustrated his first books in elementary school, on lined paper, stapled together and shared with his friends. They were about a boy who really really wanted a dog, and a boy who had a lizard for a pet.

He went on to write loads of poetry and short stories all the way through high school.

In college, he majored in creative writing -- especially children's literature -- and art. He was lucky to study with an award-winning children's author who was also a Poet Laureate and a Pulitzer finalist, who inspired him with her friendship and kind guidance.

Having children -- and now grandchildren -- has given Chip lots of opportunities to tell bedtime stories and draw pictures. Now, he's sharing his stories and drawings with everyone.

His books are all rated 4-5 stars on Amazon; film rights for one, "Rocket Summer," have been sold.
