Kids' Q&A

Robert Sabuda

Describe your latest project.
My latest book is Winter's Tale, part of my all-white pop-up series. During winter when I was a boy my father would walk with me through the snow-covered terrain of rural Michigan and point out all the different animal tracks. He knew exactly which track belonged to which animal! Winter's Tale is a celebration of all those winter animals.

Introduce one other author you think people should read, and suggest a good place to start.
David Carter's One Red Dot is one of the most innovative movable books in decades. Hopefully it will help continue a trend for non-traditional books for children.

Describe your most memorable teacher.
Maureen Lucas was my high school art teacher and turned me from the proverbial lump of teenage clay into a young artist ready to enter Pratt Institute in New York City.

What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
Piping hot oatmeal with butter and maple syrup!

What do you do for relaxation?
I practice yoga and am pleased to say that I can do a head stand (away from the wall!).

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don't ever recall a time that I didn't want to be an artist.

Why do you write books for kids?
This is the only thing I know how to do!

Name your favorite Simpsons character.
Homer Simpson, because he's just like my dad! spacer
