Happy Fun Books Author and Illustrator Dan Killeen visited Caseyville Elementary and Jefferson Elementary on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 to talk about how he creates books.
He told the students he started drawing and writing stories when he was in elementary school – just like them. He talked about his inspiration and the steps in creating a book – from idea to print.
A local children’s book author and illustrator, Killeen’s books are set in St. Louis. The students enjoyed asking him questions and identifying familiar landmarks in his stories. His books are available through his website.
