Biographical Data

From the book jacket of Tuesday (Clarion: 1991):

"David Wiesner was born and raised in Bridgewater, New Jersey, and graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration. His work has appeared in several children's books including The Loathsome Dragon , which he retold in collaboration with his wife, Kim Khang.

"Freefall, his first book of his own authorship, was awarded a 1989 Caldecott Honor Medal. His most recent book is Hurricane, of which School Library Journal said, in a starred review, 'The fantasy spreads are detailed delights....We wouldn't wish a real hurricane on children, but this book will give them a taste of the magic of the moment when the lights go out.'

"David and Kim live in Brooklyn, where he devotes full time to illustration and she pursues her career as a surgeon."
