Ruining giraffes. Escaping hot lava.  Dancing alligators.  Whisper tickles and whisker tickles.  Yellow umbrellas.  The Statue of Liberty as a toddler.  These are just a few of the fun and engaging topics tackled by Chris in the wide array of his children's picture books.

With an extensive career in both animation and children's literature, Chris uses his strengths as a story artist to his benefit when he's writing and illustrating picture books.  He has been published by Simon & Schuster, Random House, Scholastic, Chronicle Books, Bloomsbury, Sterling, and Xist Publishing.  

Chris's whimsical cartoon style feels light-hearted and carefree which seems to perfectly match his humorous writing style. He lives in Pasadena with his wife and three boys.
