He enjoyed both telling and drawing those stories, and after going to school for art, he chose to pursue a career in illustrating children’s literature. He has over 70 books and holds awards and honors like the Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators, ALA Notable Book Award, IRA Children’s Choice Awards, Best Children’s Books of the Year from the Bank Street College of Education, Parenting Best Books of the Year, and more.
