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.

Lovely Images of Easter and Spring!  Apr 18, 2007
This is a sturdy, durable board book that contains simple yet lovely illustrations of seasonal novelties such as baby animals born in Spring, Easter lilies and bonnets, the Easter Bunny bringing baskets, and the whole family coloring eggs together and participating in an Easter egg hunt on the farm. It takes a quiet, simple, secular approach to presenting Easter and Spring concepts, and, therefore, it is perfectly appropriate for any young child. The emphasis of this book is more on illustration than on text or storyline which is fine because it elicits conversation and the opportunity to teach an infant/toddler about the images depicted. My son just had his second Easter and he still enjoys the illustrations -- specifically finding and pointing out all the eggs and bunnies throughout the book. The only complaint I have is that I wish this book was longer! It positively oozes old-fashioned charm and is sure to please both children and parents alike.
