More About Tomie DePaola

Tomie DePaola Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.

It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

He names Fra Angelico and Giotto, Georges Rouault, and Ben Shahn as major influences on his work, but he soon found his own unique style. His particular way with color, line, detail, and design have earned him many of the most prestigious awards in his field, among them a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Smithsonian Medal from the Smithsonian Institution, the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for his "singular attainment in children's literature," the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal for his "continued distinguished contribution," and the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.

Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.

- He has been published for over 30 years.
- Over 5 million copies of his books have sold worldwide.
- His books have been published in over 15 different countries.
- He receives nearly 100,000 fan letters each year.

- Newbery Honor Award from American Library Association
- Smithson Medal from Smithsonian Institution
- USA nominee in illustration for Hans Christian Andersen Medal

Reviews - What do customers think about Bill and Pete To Rescue (Picture Puffins)?

Bill and Pete to the Rescue-- by: Tomie dePaola  Mar 12, 2003
A classic tale of good versus evil, this book is a touching story about the things people (or crocodiles) will do for their family. It teaches that no matter how different you may be with your relatives, you are still family and should help each other.
Bill and Pete go all the way from Egypt to the United States to rescue Bill's cousin, Jane Allison. Many mishaps occur, but all is well at the end of the story. There is also a suprise ending, but you have to read the book to find out. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a little family-oriented adventure.
Silliness You Can ALL Enjoy  May 6, 2002
I don't know what I liked most about this book -- the sly, dry humor or the wonderfully naive illustrations. This is a funny, funny book about a pair of really good friends -- a young crocodile and his young toothbrush (a bird). It also is a grand adventure with suspense and action. Quite a lot for a book for 4-8 year olds. Here's one you won't mind reading again and again.
Hey I enjoyed it!  Mar 1, 2001
I am shopping for books for my little baby nephew, hes only 8 months old, but for his first birthday i am getting him lots of books. I read Bill and Pete when i was little and i STILL like reading them! i am SO excited to see another Bill and Pete book! that just made my day!
Bill & Pete  Feb 13, 2000
My three year old son enjoyed this book so much I went to the library and took out, Bill & Pete Go Down the Nile & Bill & Pete To The Rescue. He requested they be read to him every evening, when I had to return them, he was so sad. He asked me if we could buy them so he could have them always.
Great book to teach about how one person can make a differen  Nov 5, 1999
My 3 year old daughter got this book as a birthday gift and she loved it! The book introduces kids to the issues of endangered species, and through Bill and Pete's action it teaches them how each one can make a difference.
