He is also an author and illustrator of Be Nice to Spiders, be Kind to Snakes: And 26 Other Songs.

We invite you to visit us at the Loyola Information Commons/Cudahy Library at the Lake Shore Campus to view Stephen’s artwork as well as browse through the Alumni Authors Collection. You are also welcome to view a special display of this collection at the Water Tower Campus, Lewis Library.
