Author Info
David Wisniewski
Winner of the 1997 Caldecott Award for "Golem", David Wisniewski was born in England in 1953 to an American father and a British mother. Raised primarily in Nebraska, Alabama, Texas, and Germany, Wisniewski attended the University of Maryland. After leaving college, Wisniewski became a clown for the Ringling Brothers Circus. He also worked as a puppeteer. After marrying and having children, Wisniewski began writing and illustrating children's books. In addition to illustrating his own works, Wisniewski has also illustrated the works of other authors including Eve Bunting.
Praise
"The cut-paper collages are exquisitely produced and exceedingly dramatic. There is menace and majesty in Wisniewski's use of color, and he finds atmosphere and terror in a scissor's stroke. A fact-filled final note concludes this mesmerizing book."
"The power of David Wisiewski's take on the golem story lies in his remarkable cut-paper illustrations."
From the Publisher
First Line Within the beautiful city of Prague, fierce hatreds have raged for a thousand years. People of differing beliefs in God and nation have clashed violently here: Czech against German, Protestant against Catholic, Christian against Jew.
