Peter Brown: Writing with Pictures

Peter Brown

Peter Brown has always loved using words and pictures to tell stories. When he took several children’s book classes while studying illustration at Art Center College of Design, he knew that he had found his calling.

Since then, Peter has published over a dozen books for children. His books have earned him numerous honors, including a Caldecott Honor, two E.B. White Awards, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book award, a Children’s Choice Award for Illustrator of the Year, and five NY Times Bestsellers. His titles include My Teacher Is a Monster! (No, I Am Not.), Creepy Carrots!, Children Make Terrible Pets, The Curious Garden and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild. Join us if you are wild about Peter Brown's work or writing with pictures!
