Meet the Authors

Steve Maiolo and Dannie Maiolo grew up working and playing (and, of course, occasionally getting into trouble) on their father’s small boarding stable on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to encounter quite a cast and crew of animal characters over the years that have left them with many cherished memories.

This brother-sister author pair wishes to pass along to children everywhere the stories they collected from their animal friends, who have never ceased to inspire and bring imagination to life.
