Welcome and Thanks for stopping by…

I’m an author and illustrator of well over one hundred books for children in all sorts of formats: picture books, board books, chapter books, graphic panel books, book jackets, posters and educational materials, just about any project designed for children.

I can’t think of a better job!

I also really enjoy traveling to schools to talk to children about finding their creative voices and traveling to literary festivals and conferences to talk about making books for children.  Bookstores are happy destinations, too.

I hope you enjoy clicking around these pages.

You’ll find notes on my various projects, including Michael Bond’s Paddington Bear books and Garth Stein’s Little Enzo books.  There’s also the usual biographical info, contact details and how-to-arrange-a-visit ideas.

I hope you’ll sign onto my blog for announcements of new books and speaking events and to join a conversation about literature for children.

Email or message me on facebook if something grabs your attention.
