About the Artist:
Paul O. Zelinsky’s illustrations have won wide acclaim and many awards, including the Caldecott Medal for his Rapunzel; and three Caldecott Honors, for Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Swamp Angel. He is the most recent recipient of the Society of Illustrators’ Original Art Lifetime Achievement Award for Illustrator, and is 2018’s Carle Honoree for Artist, a recognition from the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. His movable book “The Wheels on the Bus” is a perennial favorite among toddlers, and newer books he illustrated, such as Z is for Moose and Toys Meet Snow, have also been hits. He serves on the Advisory Board of SCBWI and co-chairs PEN America’s Children’s and Young Adult Books Committee. Known for his books’ variety of style and genre, Zelinsky says “I think I am recognized for being unrecognizable.” He lives with his wife in Brooklyn, NY.
