Author Bio
David Wiesner
David Wiesner grew up loving to draw in Bridgewater, New Jersey, and went on to receive a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983. Though he was initially not interested in illustrating for children, Wiesner's early foray into creating cover art for a popular kid's magazine, Cricket, put him an extremely successful path that garnered the artist several awards. A three-time Caldecott Medal recipient, Wiesner is best known for his gorgeously detailed, wordless (or sparsely worded) picture books. In 2007, he won the Caldecott for FLOTSAM.

Praise

"In Wiesner's much-honored style, the paintings are cinematic, coolly restrained and deliberate, beguiling in their sibylline images and limned with symbolic allusions. An invitation not to be resisted." 08/01/2006

"Masterfully altering the pace with panel sequences and full-bleed spreads, [Wiesner] fills every inch of the pages with intricate, imaginative watercolor details. New details swim into focus with every rereading of this immensely satisfying excursion." 07/24/2006

"Wiesner's detailed watercolors make the absurd wonderfully believable, his graphic storytelling sense is sure and swift, and children will surely love FLOTSAM from start to finish." - David Small 11/12/2006
