Adam Rubin is the New York Times bestselling author of a half dozen children’s picture books. Adam’s books are illustrated by the talented Daniel Salmieri.
Adam says, “I became a picture-book author by accident. When I found myself with the opportunity to work with this incredibly talented guy who wanted to be a picture-book illustrator, I knew I had to write something in that genre.
I went to the library and read a bunch of picture books to re-familiarize myself with the medium. There were a few books I liked, but most were saccharine, didactic or just plain boring. I decided to just write something I thought was funny.”
“I’m not sure what the key to writing good children’s books is, but I think one important thing is not to talk down to the kids. I try to write a story that makes Daniel and me laugh and use language that kids can understand.”
Adam and Daniel’s comforting harmony of unique sensibilities has won fans young and old.
During the day Adam Rubin works as creative director at a fancy digital advertising agency in New York City.
At night, Adam indulges his hobbies as a puzzle collector and magic trick aficionado.
