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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
1940...The Year Continues.....  Apr 8, 2002
Tomie dePaola is back with the fourth installment of his marvelously charming and warmhearted 26 Fairmount Avenue series. What A Year picks up right where On My Way left off, September 1940, and for young Tomie, this was the very best time of the year. September brings the beginning of first grade and Tomie's sixth birthday, with a class party and special presents. Then on to his first trick or treating Halloween and a favorite costume, Thanksgiving with the extended dePaola clan and a trip to the movies to see Pinocchio, Christmas, with pageants and presents, almost ruined by chicken pox, and the first New Year's Eve he stayed up past midnight to ring in the new year. And through it all, Mr dePaola fills his engaging memoir with well remembered and entertaining details, events, and anecdotes. Written in an easy to read, conversational style, and enhanced by delightful black and white sketches, What A Year is perfect for youngsters 7-11, and makes an even better read-aloud story the entire family can share together. Told with great insight, wisdom, humor and love, the 26 Fairmount Avenue series just gets better with each new book. As Tomie writes in his diary on the first day of the new year..."I wonder what 1941 will be like?" We can only wait for the next installment to find out.
