About the Author

Natascha Biebow's favorite crayon color is periwinkle blue because it makes her heart sing. She loves to draw and make stuff, just like Edwin Binney. She lives in London, where writes, edits, coaches and mentors children's book authors and illustrators at Blue Elephant Storyshaping, and is the long-time Regional Advisor of SCBWI British Isles. This is her first non-fiction picture book. Find her at

Steven Salerno has illustrated many popular picture books for children, including Brothers at Bat and The Fantastic Ferris Wheel. He lives and works in New York City.


"British author Biebow's first nonfiction picture book flows with conversational smoothness....The attractive full-page--and, accordingly, brightly colorful--illustrations mix realism and whimsy in Salerno's recognizable style."-Booklist

"A colorful addition to the shelves of picture books about inventors and inventions and all things STEAM."-School Library Journal

"Readers are likely to be fascinated."-Publishers Weekly

In this chatty, engaging picture book, Biebow provides the historical context around the invention of Crayola crayons....What [Caldecott Medalist] Jon Klassen achieves emotionally in his characters' eyes, Salerno manages with eyebrows here."-Kirkus

"Biebow conveys just how revolutionary this now-mundane product was at its inception....Salerno's illustrations of the Binney and Smith workforce, marching around the factory in color-splotched overalls and pursuing their experiments with the zeal of alchemists, keep the visual excitement building."-The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
