Meet the Illustrator
Michael Garland has written and illustrated many books for children. He spent his childhood in New York exploring the woods, playing sports, and drawing. Drawing was the thing he did best. When he would draw something in school, his teachers would often show it to the class and put it up on the bulletin board. This helped him to decide he wanted to become an artist.
