David Wiesner

David Wiesner grew up in suburban New Jersey, known to his classmates as "the kid who could draw." He went on to become a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was able to commit himself to the full-time study of art and to explore further his passion for visual storytelling. He soon discovered that picture books were the perfect vehicle for his work. Among other honors, Wiesner holds the Japan Picture Book Award for "Tuesday," the French Prix Sorcières for "The Three Pigs," a New York Times Ten Best Illustrated award for "Flotsam" and the German Jugendliteraturpreises for "Mr. Wuffles."
