About the Author:

Some time ago, Robert Quackenbush received a letter from a young reader who was puzzled by his name. "Are you really a duck?" the letter writer asked. Mr. Quackenbush decided right then and there to write stories about a disaster-prone duck named Henry. Henry's Awful Mistake is one of the first books in this very popular series about Henry's mishaps and how he deals with them.
Robert Quackenbush is the author / illustrator of more than 200 books for young readers. He has been awarded honors and prizes for his work, including a gold medal from the Holland Society of New York for distinction in art and literature. His art is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum and the Smithsonian Institution. It is also on display in the gallery / studio he owns and runs in New York City. The place is fairly quacking with activity for, in addition to creating his books and paintings, Mr. Quackenbush teaches writing and illustrating there to children and adults.
