National Book Festival

Award-winning author and illustrator Robert Sabuda developed an interest in pop-up books while still a child in middle school. Now his books have been named as Bank Street Best Books of the Year and ALA Notable Children's Books and have received the CBC/NCSS Notable Children's Book Award, among others. His best-selling pop-up books include "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," "America the Beautiful" and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz." He is co-creator with Matthew Reinhart of the New York Times best-selling three-volume pop-up series "Encyclopedia Prehistorica," and their latest collaboration is "Encyclopedia Mythologica: Fairies and Other Magical Creatures" (Candlewick, 2008). He lives in New York City.
