More About Pat Schories
Pat Schories was born in New York state in 1952, grew up in Ohio, and now, once again, lives in New York. Life as a child was spent outdoors: in the woods and fields, running, climbing, biking, and swimming, and indoors: reading and making art. Now, as an adult, her favorite pastimes are much the same. In addition to illustrating books, Pat enjoys gardening, hiking, and going to summer fiddle camps with her musician husband, Harry.
Pat is well known as the illustrator of the Biscuit early readers written by Alyssa Satin Capucilli and published by HarperCollins. Recently, she created a 5-book series of wordless books about a dog named Jack, perfect for children “on the verge” of reading. The Jack books are published by Front Street Books, an imprint of Boyds Mills Press. Jack and Biscuit are modeled after her own two beloved dogs, Speed and Spike.
In Forest, What Would You Like, Pat combined her love of nature with writer Irene O’Garden’s poetic text. Forest is a lushly illustrated picturebook published by Holiday House.
Pat Schories currently resides in Cold Springs, in the state of New York.
Reviews - What do customers think about Jack And the Night Visitors?
Fantastic pre-school book Dec 28, 2006
My 3.5 year old daughter talked more about this book than any other in her pre-schools Family Reads program. While the book contains no text, the story is evident. My daughter saw things I didn't and interpreted the story very quickly. She loved it. I highly recommend this book.
