Happy Birthday, David Wiesner!
Wiesner is the recipient of three Caldecott Medals for his books Tuesday, The Three Pigs, and Flotsam, all of which he wrote and illustrated. His books have been translated into over a dozen languages. He was also the creator of two Children’s Book Week posters, one in 2003 and another in 2012. Wiesner continues to create acclaimed books, often building three-dimensional models of his characters and their worlds before putting pencil to paper.
