About the Author
Steve Whitlow lives in northern England, on the top of a (very) windswept hill, with his wife and young family. Steve followed his artistic calling from an early age and was first published at age 16, producing vibrant characters for greeting cards and then children's publishing. With no formal art training and only his natural talent, Steve has now been working as a professional artist for more than twenty years. “My kids are my critics,” says Steve. “The best reaction I can hope for is an exclamation of ‘Cool, Dad!’ from either Sam or Ethan—or both.”

My favorite thing is playing ball. God made you born to run. We're not alike, but that's all right — Our differences are fun!
There's big adventure up ahead — This needs to be explored. We romp and stomp. We jump and tromp. With you, I'm never bored!
I couldn't get from here to there No matter how I tried. You came to play and saved the day! How 'bout another ride?
I've got a spot that's just your size, A cozy quilt to share. Let's go to sleep, all soft and sweet We make a snuggly pair!
I need an itty-bitty boost. I'm just a tad too small. But it seems we're a perfect team 'Cause you're a tad too small!
God gave you dark and fluffy hair. He made me pink and curled. You're not like me, but I still see My best friend in the world.
Let's have a snack — we love this stuff! Each piece seems huge to me. You go ahead and have the most. My belly's full with three!
Today when I was feeling sad, You came and made me smile. My sweetest friends bring happy grins. Please stay and play awhile!
