About the Author:

Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.

It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

He names Fra Angelico and Giotto, Georges Rouault, and Ben Shahn as major influences on his work, but he soon found his own unique style. His particular way with color, line, detail, and design have earned him many of the most prestigious awards in his field, among them a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Smithsonian Medal from the Smithsonian Institution, the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for his "singular attainment in children's literature," the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal for his "continued distinguished contribution," and the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.

Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.

- He has been published for over 30 years.
- Over 5 million copies of his books have sold worldwide.
- His books have been published in over 15 different countries.
- He receives nearly 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie dePaola has received virtually every significant recognition for his books in the children's book world, including:

- Caldecott Honor Award from American Library Association
- Newbery Honor Award from American Library Association
- Smithson Medal from Smithsonian Institution
- USA nominee in illustration for Hans Christian Andersen Medal
- Regina Medal from Catholic Library Association

From Booklist:

Reviewed with Tomie dePaola's Boss for a Day.

Gr. 1-2. The Barkers series features twin dogs Moffie and Morgie, who dress and act like elementary school children. Boss reveals that "Moffie liked being the boss. After all, she was ten minutes older than Morgie." So practiced are they in their roles that even when Moffie announces that Morgie will be the boss for a day, Morgie finds that he doesn't know how to make things go his way. And though she thinks she's being submissive, Moffie often takes charge. Hide-and-Seek follows a group of classmates through a week of recesses, which they spend deciding on the rules of hide-and-seek, rather than playing the game. Here dePaola captures the seemingly interminable negotiation that is a crucial part of children's play. Well grounded in their observation of child behavior, these stories feature believable characters and situations familiar to children. Expressive drawings, textured with patterns and lit with glowing color underscore the rueful humor of the stories. Carolyn Phelan
