Author Bio
Leo Dillon
Leo Dillon was born 11 days earlier than his future wife and creative partner, Diane Worsley. He was raised in Brooklyn, New York by parents who were immigrants from Trinidad. Dillon attended the High School of Industrial Design, after which he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. When released from the Navy, he attended Parsons School of Design where he met Diane. The couple won the Caldecott Medal in 1975 for Verna Aardema's WHY MOSQUITOES BUZZ IN PEOPLE'S EARS: A WEST AFRICAN TALE. The next year they illustrated Margaret Musgrove's ASHANTI TO ZULU, for which they received their second Caldecott Medal. They were the first illustrators to win back-to-back Caldecotts.

Diane Worsley (later, Dillon) was born only 11 days after her future husband and collaborator, Leo Dillon. She attended Los Angles City College but dropped out after contracting tuberculosis. During her recovery, she had to live in a sanitarium where she spent most of her time reading, drawing, or knitting, as she could undergo no physical activity. After her recovery, she attended Skidmore College and then transferred to Parsons School of Design, where she met Leo Dillon. The couple won the Caldecott Medal in 1975 for Verna Aardema's WHY MOSQUITOES BUZZ IN PEOPLE'S EARS: A WEST AFRICAN TALE. The next year they illustrated Margaret Musgrove's ASHANTI TO ZULU, for which they received their second Caldecott Medal. They were the first illustrators to win back-to-back Caldecotts.
