Scholastic's David Saylor edited and art directed my first picture book, Polar Bear Night (written by Lauren Thompson), as well as my forthcoming title, Where's Walrus?. I asked him recently what his favorite picture book was growing up. "I loved a book called The Little Red House, by Grace Skaar", he said. "It presented an orderly world where a mother and father built a house, made a home, and then had a family. Something about the simple progression of orderly building and growing was soothing to me".
