It’s a noisy night in this city building! The residents of each floor can hear their neighbors above them, and are wondering what’s going on above their heads. Climb floor by floor and page by page to find out whose singing, dancing, cheering, and cooing are keeping a grumpy old man awake.
I cannot tell you how excited I am about this book. Mac wrote a weird, perfect little script full of onomatopoeia and interesting characters, and I got to run a little wild with it. Reviewed in the New York Times on April 9, 2017.
Written by me. Tinyville Town is where I’ve lived all my life. You live there too. This is series of books about this town and the people who live there. Three books are being published simultaneously this fall.

The first in a series of six books about a boy and his robots, and building antimatter motors, and saving the town, and a chimpanzee who speaks in sign-language, and a giant pink squirt-gun. What else could you want? Read more.

Ellray is the shortest kid in his class. He’s got lots of other issues as well. This is a nine-book series written by Sally Warner. I illustrated all the covers, but only the interior of books 4 through 9. I know, it’s complicated. It’s a terrific series.

You say your parents never take you camping? Well it’s not their fault. They just haven’t read this book. It’s really well-written, well-designed, and the illustrations are ok too. It fits in tents and backpacks.
