I have loved the books that he and his wife Diane illustrated for a long time. Here are just a few:

Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears by Verna Aardema

The Girl Who Spun Gold by Virginia Hamilton

Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems by Eloise Greenfield

The People Could Fly American Black Folktales by Virginia Hamilton

and one of my favorites from last year:

Never Forgotten by Patricia McKissack

He will be missed.
