Keika Yamaguchi is a picture book illustrator. As a child who had just come from Japan, picture books were an essential tool to help Keika read in English. In the library, she looked for books with illustrations that she could get lost in. Keika majored in Visual Storytelling for Animation at Pasadena Art Center College of Design and graduated with honors in 2010. Her work includes Puddle Pig (Sterling, April 2014); What About Moose? (Atheneum, June 2015); and her latest release, Teeny Tiny Toady (Sterling, March 2016).
Keika will appear on the Picture Book Stage at Tots, Tweens, & Teens Book Festival on May 14, 2016.
