Keats started solely as an illustrator for the work of other authors. But he soon observed that few children’s books showcased an African-American or other minority child as the main character. Published in 1962, The Snowy Day was the second book Keats both authored and illustrated (the first was My Dog Is Lost, in 1960, co-authored by Patt Cherr, which featured a recently arrived Puerto Rican boy, Juanity), and was a milestone for featuring the first African-American protagonist in a full-color picture book. “None of the manuscripts I’d been illustrating featured any black kids—except for token blacks in the background. My book would have him there simply because he should have been there all along,” Keats wrote in an unpublished autobiography (portions of which have been printed in various publications since the author’s death).
