Over the past 35 years, I have published poems, reviews, essays, many filmstrips and videos, and more than 40 children's picture books.Born and raised in Chicago, I graduated from DePauw University (Greencastle, Indiana) and later received an MA in humanities from the University of Chicago. I've published books for children since the early 1990s. My books - including numerous unpublished ones! - run a broad gamut, from stories geared for pre-schoolers to survival stories and biographies aimed at seven to eleven-year-olds. My work is wide-ranging because, basically, I'm a generalist by experience - and inclination!In addition to writing, I paint regularly under the art name Burleigh Kronquist and have shown work in one-person and group shows in Chicago, New York, and elsewhere around the country.

Nice book, but I wish it would have explained the life of Audubon just a little more.

Loosely inspired by Jack Kerouac's On the Road and the Ray Charles song, Jack the jackrabbit bebops his way across the United States. A charming, delightfully illustrated tribute to the beauty of the country and the restless, travel-loving spirit of Kerouac.
