 Author Study Night:Kevin Henkes
Kevin Henkes
“I’ve been writing and illustrating children’s books for thirty years. It’s the only real job I’ve ever had.
 When my work is going well, it’s transformative. I feel asif I’ve been removed from ordinary time and am living in
some parallel universe, a world of grace and wonder.Books are often the first exposure to art that childrenhave. Keeping that in mind urges me to make the very bestbooks possible. I know how important the books from mychildhood were (and are) to me. Without them, I might notbe a writer and artist today.
Sometimes I’ll hear from a parent about how a book of
mine has insinuated itself into the heart of his or her child, or how a phrase from one of my books has become part
 of the family’s daily jargon. I love that. But most of all, I
love sitting alone in a quiet room drawing and painting and
 writing. I love my job.”
