With over forty published so far, Doug lives up to his reputation of producing award-winning picture books. His keen eye, sense of fun and imagination, combined with a broad knowledge of pacing, color, and space he skillfully adds subtext to each illustration, creating a finished book larger than its parts. This year, Doug adds a new dimension to his already stellar portfolio: The Storybook Prince, set to be released by Simply Read Books, is the first book Doug has both written and illustrated. Cleverly designed with die-cuts, this is the tale of a young prince enthralled by the challenge of reading just the right book to his friends who come to the castle for a visit including a dragon, a witch, a giant and other fairy tale creatures that live in his kingdom.
