“A simply told, graphically arresting tale.” -Kirkus Reviews
David Teague lives in Wilmington, Delaware, with his family: the astounding novelist Marisa de los Santos, the beautiful singer Annabel, and the jazzy pianist Charles. He teaches literature at the University of Delaware, works in the library at Charles and Annabel’s school, and loves to read books–silently, out loud, in bed, in the back yard, and in the side yard. He plays the violin but doesn’t practice enough. In David’s opinion, Boris Kulikov, the illustrator of “Franklin’s Big Dreams,” rocks!
Check out David’s Coffee & Conversation interview here!
He also contributed this great guest post, Summer Beach Reads: What’s Your Favorite Children’s Book?
Congratulations again, David, for THE RED HAT! We’re also looking forward to your January release of HENRY CICADA’S EXTRAORDINARY ELKTONIUM ESCAPADE. More on that later!
