An American author and illustrator of numerous children's books, Wiesner has received three Caldecott Medals and two Caldecott Honors for his works. I've been lucky enough to experience the pleasure of enjoying his three Caldecott winners. Despite the fact that the books are meant for the pure entertainment of children, I doubt that few adults can resist them as well. The artwork is gorgeous - lovingly rendered in finely-worked detail. They furnish esprit to an already intrinsically fascinating story. Fantastic and full of verve, these books will entrall both children and art-lovers alike.
I'm a self taught amateur artist/writer/nobody who, having existed as a drifter for the past several years, has finally decided to end the peripatetics and settle down (yeah,right) to work on my own two little blogs: iKzut (my scrappy little art blog) and the drifter notes (a blog dedicated to book reviews/literature related stuff). Feel free to drop by anytime...no guarantees that I'll be home.
