Meet the Author

Hudson Talbott has written and illustrated over twenty books for young readers. His books have been made into films, musicals, and have won several awards, including a Newbury Honor.

Hudson grew up in Louisville, KY, the youngest of four children and the only one with an interest in the arts. Despite his parents' orientation toward sports, they supported his artistic pursuits, allowing him to study art in Italy. After living abroad for several years Hudson began his career in New York as a free-lance designer/illustrator commissioned by such accounts as The Metropolitan Museum, The Met Opera, Bloomingdale's and the Museum of Modern Art. There he created his first children's book called "How to Show Grown-Ups the Museum". His next book, "We're Back! A Dinosaur's Story," was produced as a feature-length animated film by Steven Spielberg. Hudson also collaborated with the composer Stephen Sondheim on a book adaptation of the composer's musical "Into the Woods." Two other books, "River of Dreams" and "O'Sullivan Stew" have since been adapted and produced for the stage as children's musicals.

Hudson's lifelong impulse to travel has informed the subject matter of several of his books. "Amazon Diary" came after his trip to the Amazon rainforest where he journeyed with a jungle doctor who brought malaria medicine to remote indigenous tribes. "Safari Journal" was the product of his travels with a wildlife veterinarian in Kenya. Hudson is currently working with an orphanage in Laos, to develop a program for teaching English and art to the children there.

Hudson lives in New York and commutes between his loft in Manhattan and his farmhouse in the Hudson Valley, where he lives with his two cats Holly and Jasper. His newest book was created at their insistence. It's called "It's All About Me-ow".
