He graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and is also trained in animation.
★ "The beloved, multiaward-winning McKissack leaves readers one last insightful tale that teaches the value of self-reliance and gently cautions against believing preconceived notions. . . . Cyr, in his debut picture book, creates an atmospheric and precarious landscape through brilliant use of shadow and color."--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review "A truly scary, folkloric story about clever little ones coping with a brutal foe."--Booklist "Cyr's use of light draws viewers' eyes toward the solicitous and thoughtful mice, but when the cat attacks against a vibrant red background on a full-bleed double-page spread, expect startled squeals aplenty."--The Horn Book "A worthy addition to home and school libraries by a master storyteller, perfect for storytime or one-on-one sharing."--School Library Journal
