Tom Booth is an author, illustrator, and art director. Born on the twelfth day of the twelfth month, Tom made his earliest marks — sometimes on his parents’ antique kitchen table — growing up just outside of Philadelphia.

Tom attended Hamilton College where he majored in history and mark-making, otherwise known as studio art. After graduating, Tom moved to New York City to begin working for Scholastic, so that he could afford a table for more mark making. Eventually, Tom made enough marks to convince the wonderful publishers at Simon & Schuster that he was ready for his first picture book, Derek Jeter Presents Night at the Stadium, which became a #1 bestseller on Amazon. Currently, Tom lives in Brooklyn with his fiancée, one normal cat named Luna, and one highly unstable cat named Rory.

Tom has had the good fortune to work with Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Workman Publishing, Nicktoons, and Scholastic
