He studied with Maurice Sendak at Yale University and it was Sendak who inspired him to pursue a career in children's books. He is best known for his internationally successful novelty title, The Wheels On the Bus, and he has won the prestigious Caldecott Medal three times. He lives in New York with his wife and two daughters.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* PreS-Gr. 3. This well-imagined, cleverly constructed book will keep children busy for hours, examining the intricate workings and humming the familiar nursery rhyme-counting song. Richly colored, full-page spreads feature a boy and his dachshund getting up, tying shoes, and going outdoors for some fun, while tiny "old men," each one different, peek out from behind the boy's hand, inside his shoe, around the door, out of a hive, inside his backpack. On the second to last spread, old man number 10 can be found concealed beneath tiny flaps on the next-to-last spread, revisiting all the hiding places of his predecessors, which also show all 10 men "rolling home" down a hill as the little boy laughs uproariously. The minuscule old men actually peek, roll, and move, thanks to a variety of pull tabs and flaps. The paper is sturdy, but the pull tabs sometimes stick, and very young children will need an adult's help to work them without destroying them. Libraries may want to restrict this to small-group storytime. Diane Foote
