My name is Tony Alioto and I am a children's book writer and illustrator. 


I live just north of San Francisco in the town of Cotati, where I love to create silly characters with good hearts and lots of wonderful flaws. 


My first picture book, Gary The Very Serious Hippopotamus, is currently on submission and is represented by John Rudolph at Dystel Goderich & Bourret.


I have a weekly comic strip for kids called Little Green Monsters, which can be found every Sunday at Sunday Haha and on Instagram

My wife Amanda and I also have a line of very silly, pun-filled greeting cards called Hungry Pajama Studios.
