Chris’s other books include “My Yellow Umbrella”, “I’ll Trade My Peanut-Butter Sandwich”, “Little Miss Liberty”, “Kit and Kaboodle”, and “The Tooth That’s on the Loose!” Chris’s whimsical cartoon style feels light-hearted and carefree which seems to perfectly match his humorous writing style.
While in elementary school, Chris was introduced to “Curious George”, “Madeline”, and “Harry the Dirty Dog” by way of the Bookmobile. The introduction left such a strong impression, that even at an early age, Chris knew children’s books were going to be an important part of his life.
Chris graduated from Cal State Northridge with a degree in illustration. He spent 10 years freelancing as an illustrator mainly for magazines and newspapers. With his cartoon style it only seem natural for him to venture into the field of animation. He broke in as a storyboard artist for Nickelodeon Animation Studios. Chris moved up the creative ladder to become storyboard director. During his tenure at Nickelodeon, he developed a strong sense of visual storytelling. Learning how to create a story only in pictures gave him the confidence to create and write his own children’s books. Chris lives in Pasadena with his wife and three boys.
