Once upon a time, I was an architect. But now I’d much rather build worlds in books — picture books like Blue Chicken and The Story of Fish & Snail . My most recent books are Shy and This House, Once , CARL and The Meaning of Life , and—brand new— Is Was .

I love reading books; I hate rating them! Let us just say that if I did not like a book, it is not here at all.
