The Best Pet of All

I am such a lucky man! I get to make my living writing and illustrating books for young people. Welcome to my website where you can read about my books, discover what I was like as a kid, and even try your hand at some of my puzzles.

What's New with David?

Here are a few of the things I've been up to lately:

It is a huge honor to announce that Moo!, illustrated by Mike Wohnoutka, is the inaugural selection for Minnesota's new early literacy program, Once Upon a Reader. Mike and I will be traveling to 50 libraries across the state, performing our “Moo! Trunk Show” that includes storytelling, drawing, puppets, and original music. In addition, 15,000 Head Start children will receive a free copy of Moo! You can find out more about the program, as well as watch an interview with Mike and me about the creation of the book and view a moo-vie of the story, at onceuponareader.org.
