About the Author

Mark Weston's inspiration for this children’s book about Soichiro Honda came from the extensive research he did for his highly praised adult book about pioneering men and women of Japan called Giants of Japan. A former attorney, journalist, and Jeopardy! contestant, Weston is now a full-time writer. He lives in Armonk, New York.

Katie Yamasaki is an illustrator, author, muralist, fine artist, and teaching artist. Growing up in the "car culture" of Detroit, Yamasaki had an immediate connection to Honda's story. Yamasaki comes from a huge, diverse family that is full of (among many other things) artists and teachers. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
