ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Ed Emberley is an Caldecott award-winning, beloved author and illustrator of children's books. Wonderful, whimsical, and humorous, he is best known for encouraging a generation of children to take the drawing process step by step. He shies away from calling himself an artist and instead likes to say "he draws pictures for a living". Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ed attended Massachusetts College of Art where he met his wife, Barbara. His book One Wide River won the Caldecott honor in 1967, followed by the Caldecott award for "Drummer Hoff" in 1968. In the 1970s he published a series of much loved How To Draw books featuring his unique drawing alphabet. It has been said that Ed Emberley can teach anyone to draw. These books are still in use today as much as they were when first published. Ed has gone on to publish more than 100 books for children, most recently a series of revisited fables and fairy tales with his daughter Rebecca. Mr. Emberley still lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Barbara, on the Ipswich River.
