More About Tomie dePaola

Tomie DePaola Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.

It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

He names Fra Angelico and Giotto, Georges Rouault, and Ben Shahn as major influences on his work, but he soon found his own unique style. His particular way with color, line, detail, and design have earned him many of the most prestigious awards in his field, among them a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Smithsonian Medal from the Smithsonian Institution, the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for his "singular attainment in children's literature," the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal for his "continued distinguished contribution," and the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.

Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.

- He has been published for over 30 years.
- Over 5 million copies of his books have sold worldwide.
- His books have been published in over 15 different countries.
- He receives nearly 100,000 fan letters each year.

Great way to discuss adoption of an older child  Mar 11, 2008
The Barker twins are back, with a new sibling to teach! Morgie and Moffie are excited that the long wait has come to an end, and their new brother, three year old Marcos, has arrived. Marcos speaks Spanish, and is not initially enamored by the twins' efforts to integrate him into the family. Throughout the book, Marcos introduces his new siblings to various new Spanish words, and pronunciations are included on the acknowledgments page. The underlying message that everyone can learn from each other is delivered in a light way, with just the right amount of humor. De Paola's signature acrylic illustrations and repetitive patterns assist the new reader in determining the text, although a brighter, more distinct color pallet could have enhanced the effect. While Jean Little's Emmy's Yucky Brother covers similar ground of a family's adjustment to each other when adopting an older child, the added benefit of encouraging a bilingual household and the message that Marcos can also educate the family make A New Barker deserving of a new home on a child's bookshelf.
A New Barker in the House-- by: Tomie dePaola  Mar 12, 2003
In this book, Morgie and Moffie's parents adopt a three-year-old Spanish-speaking boy, Marcos. Morgie and Moffie (twins) get excited and over-do it a little the first day. They forget that their new brother doesn't understand them when they speak to him in English. On the second day, Morgie and Moffie realize that they should teach their brother things as well as learn from him. Marcos fits in better now, and they are a family. My favorite character in this book was Marcos. I would recommend this book especially for parents to read to their children if they are adopting a child, whether or not the child is from a foreign country. I would also recommend it to anyone else looking for a good book about family.
