About this author

Once upon a time, I was an architect. But now I'd much rather build worlds in books — picture books like Scribble (Knopf, 2007), Blue Chicken (Viking, 2011), The Story of Fish & Snail (Viking, 2013), and By Mouse & Frog , coming from Viking in 2015.

I love reading books; I hate rating them! Let's just say that if I really didn't like a book, it isn't here at all.

I looked at the pictures, and looked... and looked... does that count as *reading* the book?

Lisbeth Zwerger, exquisite, as always.

Deborah I'm glad you found me too — I am a shameless book nerd and love to connect with others who like to book-talk, especially about children's books!
