About The Author

Photograph by Ria Winanda

Alastair Heim writes children’s picture books. He lives in Kansas City with his awesomely awesome family who inspire him every day. Laughter is his favorite sound, purple is his favorite color, and other-people-cooking-for-me is his favorite food. Alastair is a huge fan of music and has been known to play the guitar with impeccable mediocrity. After experiencing the joy, laughter, and wondrous awe picture books brought his kids (and still continue to), he thought that there would be nothing cooler than to see that same reaction come from one of Daddy’s stories. He hopes his books put a smile on other kids’ faces, too.
