David shannon coloring pages

An entry in the Eight Book of Junior Authors and Illustrators states, “Shannon tells his stories with vibrant, imaginative pictures. Working with acrylic paints, he creates characters and settings that both illustrate and expand the story being told. His artwork is richly colored, and the results can be funny, mischievous, ironic, sensational, spooky, serious, even epic. ” Shannon’s work has been recognized by the American Library Association and the School Library Journal. As Dwight Garner said, “David Shannon is among this country’s most respected children’s book illustrators; in a field that has nearly as many award ceremonies each year as the television industry does, Shannon has taken home most of their prizes. . . ”
