Award-winning children's author & illustrator Peter Brown visits Gladwyne

Children's author and illustrator Peter Brown recently visited Gladwyne Elementary School to speak with first and second grade students about his work as a writer and artist, the creative process, and even shared some of his early illustrations as an elementary school student. Throughout the assembly, Brown shared stories and showed slides of his development as an author and illustrator, ranging from his very first book he created at the age of six to his most recent publication, Creepy Pair of Underwear. His titles include New York Times bestsellers like The Wild Robot, The Curious Garden, Children Make Terrible Pets, and Mr. Tiger Goes Wild. Peter's illustrations for Creepy Carrots!, written by Aaron Reynolds, earned him a Caldecott Honor.
