The inspiration to create childrens' books grew out of my fascination with the stories out there in the natural world. I write and illustrate for children because
I trust the process of gathering these stories, in all their complexity, and then distilling them down to what is essential. That's what children see.

The creation of each of these books took me into some wild worlds -
deep forests, dark caves, colorful deserts, towering skyscrapers!
