I am not familiar with this author and his art style is not my favorite, with no background or interest, I found this an incredibly boring read. However, a fan of this author/illustrator would find this incredibly inspiring and interesting, as they get a peek into the life of their favorite storyteller.MS, HS -OPTIONAL Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author
