Ride with the MotoMice to discover what bikers everywhere know when you re on a motorcycle, you re part of the family. Not just for motorcycle riders and their children, MotoMice will inspire everyone who knows that, despite our outward differences, we are all one in our essence. Artist and author, Paul Owen Lewis, lovingly portrays the motorcycle community through his inventive MotoMice, with vibrant colors and intricate details that any motorcycle enthusiast can appreciate and welcome.

Artist and author Paul Owen Lewis has been creating picture books since 1987 when Beyond Words published his first work, Davy's Dream, the beloved northwest children's classic still in print today. In 1996 his spectacular book, Storm Boy, received numerous awards including the prestigious American Book Award for Excellence in American Literature by the Before Columbus Foundation, and was chosen as the featured book for an episode of the PBS television series, Storytime, read by host Jane Seymour. Other best-selling titles include Grasper, Frog Girl, The Jupiter Stone, and P. Bear's New Year's Party.

A common theme of Paul's stories is the universal longing we all share to express our identity both as an individual and as a part of something larger. When he's not carving up a nearby mountain pass on his motorcycle or speaking at schools across the country (nearly a million students have enjoyed his inspirational visits thus far) Mr. Lewis lives on an island in Washington State where his immediate neighbors are ravens, killer whales, and a few awesome humans.
