Back to Meet the Authors

Husband-and-wife duo Sarah Stewart and Caldecott Medalist David Small have worked together on several picture books, most recently “The Quiet Place” (Farrar, Straus & Giroux). Small has also written and illustrated other books, including the 2001 Caldecott Medal winner, “So You Want to Be President?” by Judith St. George. Small’s drawings have appeared regularly in The New Yorker and The New York Times. His books have been translated into several languages, made into animated films and musicals and won many of the top awards for illustration.
