More About Tomie dePaola


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! 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.

Tomie dePaola has received virtually every significant recognition forhis books in the children's book world, including:

- Caldecott Honor Award from American Library Association
- 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 Tomie dePaola's Book of Bible Stories?

A book to treasure  May 17, 2008
Wtih dePaola's beautiful, iconic illustrations, the words of the New International Version of the Bible come alive. He has taken some of the most important stories (for instance, Noah and the ark, Adam and Eve, Moses, Jesus's birth and resurrection) in the Bible and made them appealing to children. DePaola's illustrations are never "cute", never cloying, but bright, crisp, and reverent.
 
Bible stories brought to life by illustrator  May 5, 2000
By combining the text of the NIV Bible with illustrations by Tomie De Paola, this book vividly portrays the story of Christianity from creation through the crucifixion and resurrection to the coming of the Holy Spirit. Children of all ages will be drawn to these stories with their beautifully drawn illustrations. The color, simplicity and depth in the illustrations immediately connect the text to a mental image and make the stories come alive. This is a wonderful book to give to any child.
