About the Author
Husband and wife duo Sarah Stewart and David Small have worked together on several picture books, including The Friend, The Money Tree, and The Library. The Gardener is a Caldecott Honor book. Small has also illustrated other books, including the 2001 Caldecott Medal winner So You Want to Be President?, by Judith St. George. Stewart and Small live in a historic home on a bend of the St. Joseph River in Michigan.
Dread is a constant companion in illustrator and writer David Small's new book... Michel's witty writing has our Werewolf lament at the prey he wishes he could still catch, but it's Small's illustrations, which capture the Werewolf's frailty as both man and wolf, that elevate the material into something haunting.... Whether it is fascism unchecked, or just age, it's the promise of the unavoidable that causes the dread for what lies certain in our path.--Brendan Tynan Buck "New City Lit"
Small's fluid linework and exceptional visual storytelling result in a compelling, deeply affecting collection.-- "Library Journal"
David Small presents us with a profound and moving gift of graphic literature that has the look of a movie and reads like a poem.--Jules Feiffer, author of the best-selling Kill My Mother trilogy, on David Small's Stitches
Capturing body language and facial expressions subtly, Stitches becomes in Small's skillful hands a powerful, an emotionally charged autobiography.--Robert Crumb, on David Small's Stitches
The silence of Small's masterful drawings has put words in my mouth--words that recapture the inchoate chaos of youth.--Jack Gantos, winner of the Newbery Award and author of Hole in My Life, on David Small's Home After Dark
The drawings are gorgeous and expressive--Small's facial expressions alone filled me with awe. A wonderful book.--Roz Chast, cartoonist for The New Yorker, on David Small's Home After Dark
The collection is more adult picture book than graphic novel and is immensely enjoyable. Small's linework is striking in its expressiveness and energy, figures and forms leaping across the page while eyes and lips simmer with emotion. Broad patches and layers of color imbue the illustrations with a gorgeous painterly quality . . . Surreal and searing.--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
