(From author’s site)
I began illustrating books in 1966. Since that time I have published over 300 books. Most of my books are about things that happened to me when I was a little kid. Now I’m a big kid and I write about things that happen now, especially with my own children and grandchildren. They always remind me of what it is like to be little.
I was born in Arkansas in 1943. Boy, that was a long time ago! It’s real fun to
be an old kid. When I was thirteen years old, my parents and my sister and I moved to Hawaii. After high school, I went to Honolulu Academy of Arts.
Then, I went to New York City and the Art Students League. A few years later,
I began writing children’s books. Then I moved to New England. My wife, Gina, and I write the Little Critter stories together.
