Richard Jesse Watson has been creating children’s picture books since 1985. His version of The Night Before Christmas rocketed to the New York Times Bestseller List (HarperCollins 2006), and Tom Thumb won the SCBWI Golden Kite Award. His illustrations have been chosen for numerous juried exhibitions, including The Original Art Exhibit, the Society of Illustration Annual Exhibit; permanent and traveling exhibits with MAZZA Museum, and the National Center for Children’s Illustrated Literature. Kirkus Review proclaims his book, The Magic Rabbit, “exuberant”. Publishers Weekly asserts, “Watson’s artwork achieves a startling blend of the ancient and the timeless.”
