About Lane Smith

Lane Smith is the creator of a shelf of books, including the New York Times bestselling It's a Book and its companion, It's a Little Book. The beautiful Caldecott Honor-winning Grandpa Green can also be found there alongside his brilliantly quirky collaborations with John Scieszka including The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and The Stinky Cheeseman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. He has also illustrated Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach and collaborated on the conceptual design of the Disney movie adaptation. In 2012, the Eric Carle Museum named him a Carle Artist for 'lifelong innovation in the field of children's picture books,' and in 2014 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Illustrators. Lane Smith and his wife, the designer Molly Leach, live in a small town in rural Connecticut, USA.
