David McPhail has been drawing since he was two years old. He received his formal art training at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, but started out drawing on walls and paper bags as a child. He is the illustrator of more than fifty books for children. He currently resides in Rye, New Hampshire.From Booklist:
PreS-Gr. 1. A revamped design and larger, more colorful artwork showcase a story familiar to readers of the 1976 edition. After Henry Bear's father takes off in his hot-air balloon, Henry finds satisfaction in tending his park and living in his cozy tree house. Still, Henry longs to see his father again and even comes to believe that a certain pig can help find him. The more he focuses on his father, the more Henry neglects the park. Only after Henry learns that the pig is a charlatan does his father return. Nearly twice as large as the original edition, which was illustrated with detailed pen-and-ink drawings, the new book features the same pictures enlarged and tinted with watercolors. The size of the pictures and the depth of the colors create a more magical and more convincing dream world for Henry to inhabit. A beautiful new setting for this strange, haunting story.
