Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I'm the author of picture books including bestseller Shark vs. Train, Sibert Honor-winning The Day-Glo Brothers, and Whoosh! Lonnie Johnson's Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions, which has been included on 21 state reading lists.

Other well-known titles of mine include Fire Truck vs. Dragon, Dazzle Ships, What Do You Do with a Voice Like That? The Story of Extraordinary Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (included on the 2020-21 Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List), and All of a Sudden and Forever: Help and Healing After the Oklahoma City Bombing.

My new books in 2021 and 2022 include How to Make a Book (About My Dog), illustrated by Sarah Horne; Moving Forward: From Space-Age Rides to Civil Rights Sit-Ins with Airman Alton Yates, illustrated by Steffi Walthall; and Sister, Brother, Family: An American Childhood in Music, written with Willie Nelson and Bobbie Nelson.

I visit schools by the score and also love speaking to professional gatherings of librarians, educators, and fellow writers.

I'm married to YA/middle-grade novelist Jennifer Ziegler (How Not to Be Popular, Worser, the Brewster Triplets series). Jennifer and I have four children and one dog, and we co-host the children’s literature video series “This One’s Dedicated to…” in which we talk with other authors and illustrators about the dedications they’ve written for their books.

Jennifer and I live in Austin, Texas, where I have advocated for greater diversity in children's literature by co-founding the Modern First Library program with independent bookseller BookPeople.
