Shawn Harris

Shawn Harris’s first illustrated book, "Her Right Foot" by Dave Eggers, received seven starred reviews, was an Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book, an American Library Association Notable, and a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. His other picture books include Eggers's "What Can a Citizen Do?" which was a Time Magazine Best Children’s Book, and "Everyone’s Awake" by Colin Meloy. Harris also occasionally moonlights as singer/songwriter of the popular Oakland, Calif., band The Matches, whose early 2000s album art sparked his illustration career.
