More About Sarah Kilborne & Steve Johnson

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peach and Blue?

Everyone should know this book!  Mar 17, 2007
The illustrations are stunning. This book teaches about friendship in an amazing way. Blue does things for Peach that she can't do herself, and Peach helps Blue "see" how lovely the world is that he takes for granted every day.
Peach adn Blue  Jan 9, 2007
This is a great story, kids and adults will love it! The art work is great too.
Peach and Blue  Sep 28, 2006
This really is a lovely book. It's sweet without being saccharine and gives its moral gracefully without preachiness. It's about a toad and a peach, of all things, as they meet and learn new things from each other- most of all, how to enjoy the time you have with someone, even if it ends too soon. I can see how this book would help children learn how to spend time with a loved one who is dying.
A "repeater" and also a "keeper"  Jun 18, 2006
I can't believe that anyone--least of all a librarian-- would claim that this book has no appeal to children. I bought our first copy of this book because of the gorgeous, artistic illustrations and intriguing story. Our kids grew up loving it, and still refer to its poignant story although they're now teenagers. Whenever I read this book, new analogies come to mind for the characters--sometimes I think that Peach is confined a bit like a person in a wheelchair, and Blue takes her around....increasing her mobility as she reciprocates by opening his mind to new observations. We've relocated several times and had to get rid of many books over the years, but this one is a "keeper" in the same league with Velveteen Rabbit.
Peach and Blue  Dec 1, 2005
This is a beautiful story about friendship, although it may be more appropriate for older children and adults. Children may not understand it's true meaning. For an adult or young adult who has to face the upcoming death of a friend or family member it is very meaningful. I cry every time I read it, but I love the story.
