About this author

Librarian Note: There is more than one author in the Goodreads database with this name.

Don Brown is the award-winning author and illustrator of many picture book biographies. He has been widely praised for his resonant storytelling and his delicate watercolor paintings that evoke the excitement, humor, pain, and joy of lives lived with passion. School Library Journal has called him "a current pacesetter who has put the finishing touches on the standards for storyographies." He lives in New York with his family.


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

While visiting Emporia State University’s May Maasee Collection.


Maasee was a legendary children’s book editor and the collection has some extraordinary pieces, including early Robert McCloskey sketches.
