Stéphane Barroux spent most of his childhood in Northern Africa. Upon returning to France, he spent several years in art school before becoming artistic director for an advertising agency. He then decided to take his life in a new direction and left for Canada, followed by the United States, where he began a brilliant career as an illustrator of children’s books and for the press. He has worked for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Forbes, and has published many children’s books. A finalist for the Governor’s Award in 2007 in Canada for Super Bricoleur, le roi de la clef à molette (published by 400 Coups), he was awarded the “Prix Enfantaisie” for La Cerise géante de Mr Jean (2005, Alice Editions) and the New York Book Fair Golden Award for Extraordinary Pets (2011, Blue Apple Books). He joined Little Urban in 2016 with On déménage !, the result of a hybrid art technique involving scissors, paintbrushes, and even glue. His latest book asks the question, Mais que font les parents la nuit ? (“What Do Parents Do at Night?”).
