About The Author

While attending a summer school course at Yale when he was a design student, Thomas illustrated and wrote his first book and discovered his first love—making children’s books. Creating the images. Writing the text. Sequencing the pages. It was all such a magical experience. And he’s been a fan ever since. An accomplished designer, art director, and creative director with more than two decades of experience, Thomas eventually came to the realization through his work that the kind of dialogue found on the pages of this book had actually been taking place in his own thoughts. In order to get words and graphics to play well together and express a big idea, Thomas had to embark time and time again on a path of creative discovery that often included a happy accident or two. This is when the fun really begins! Thomas is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and an Emmy member with a long list of national and international design awards.
