Joe Jurek is making his debut as a children's book author with "They Don't Make Books About Uncles." When his niece was born, he went to the bookstore to buy her an Uncle book. He found books about mommies & daddies, and brothers & sisters, and grandmas & grandpas, even books about aunties... but no books about Uncles. So he wrote this one!
Joe is a graduate of the University of Illinois and of the Second City writing program. He is currently a copywriter in the Chicagoland area.
Joe Ninni is also making his debut as a children's book illustrator. He studies at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and is currently working as a designer/illustrator. Joe's goal with his colorful and fun style of illustration is to put a smile on the readers face, whether young or old. You may see more of Joe's illustrations at www.joeninni.com.
