Author Bio
David Small
Often ill as a child, author and illustrator David Small spent many hours confined to his bed where he drew pictures to help pass the time. He has said that he had a difficult time at school and did not feel completely comfortable in an educational setting until he began taking art classes at Wayne State University. After receiving a B.F.A. from Wayne State, Small studied art at Yale where he received his M.F.A. and also worked as an assistant professor of art. His illustrations for Judith St. George's SO YOU WANT TO BE PRESIDENT earned that book the 2000 Caldecott Medal.

Praise

"Complementing Cal's authentically childlike thoughts, Small's deft, rough-edged lines and masterful watercolors convey even more than Henson's carefully honed text." 11/1/08
