oks, he spent several years applying his talents to the fields of education, theater, and graphic design. In the mid-1960s, he received his first commission to illustrate a childrens science book. A year later, he published his first original picture book, The Wonderful Dragon of Timlin. Today, he is one of the most prolific — and beloved — author/illustrators in childrens literature. In addition to illustrating stories by other writers, DePaola has created artwork for collections of poetry, nursery rhymes, holiday traditions, and folk and religious tales. But, he is most famous for books of his own creation, especially Strega Nona (Grandma Witch), the beloved story of an old woman who uses her magical powers to help the people of her small Italian village. Written in 1975, this Caldecott Honor winner is still delighting children today. DePaola admits that there are strong autobiographical elements in many of his books (Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs, The Art Lesson, Stagestruck), but nowhere is this more evident than in 26 Fairmount Avenue, a series of charming chapter books based on his Connecticut childhood. Taking its name from the address of his family home, the series captures the experiences and emotions of a young boy growing up in the late 1930s and early 40s in the shadow of World War II. The first book in the series received a 1999 Newbery Honor Award. DePaola and his work have been recognized with many honors, including the Smithsonian Medal, the Kerlan Award for singular attainment in childrens literature, the Catholic Library Associations Regina Medal, and several awards from the Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators. In 1999, the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts bestowed on dePaola the Lotte Jacobi Living Treasure Award for the body of his work.
