David Wiesner is one of the world's most celebrated visual storytellers. The creator of many best-selling picture books, he has been awarded three Caldecott Medals - the nation's highest illustration honor - for "Tuesday," "The Three Pigs," and "Flotsam" and has also won three Caldecott Honors for "Free Fall," "Sector 7," and "Mr. Wuffles."

David grew up in suburban New Jersey, known to his classmates as "the kid who can draw." He went on to become a student at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he was able to commit himself to the full-time study of art and to explore further his passion for telling stories with images. An acknowledged master of the picture book format, David has also made forays into new media, such as his interactive story "The Day the World Broke."
