About this author

Jon Klassen received the 2010 Canadian Governor General’s Award for his illustrations in Caroline Stutson’s CAT'S NIGHT OUT. He also created illustrations for the popular series THE INCORRIGIBLE CHILDREN OF ASHTON PLACE and served as an illustrator on the animated feature film Coraline. I WANT MY HAT BACK is the first book he has both written and illustrated. Originally from Niagara Falls, Canada, he lives in Los Angeles.


Jon Klassen isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.


tomorrow night Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra CA is having a show for Red Cap Cards—I have new some cards and original work from them at it. Come say hi!
