Michael Hall grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where autumn was memorable for football, floats, caramel apples, and spectacular colors. He is the creator of several acclaimed picture books for children, including Frankencrayon, Red: A Crayon's Story, My Heart Is Like a Zoo, Perfect Square, and It's an Orange Aardvark! Michael Hall now lives with his family in Minneapolis, Minnesota-another city that shimmers in the fall.
"It stole my heart." -- Robert Sabuda, New York Times bestselling author "Starting with one simple shape, Michael Hall shows us a nearly infinite number of ways to make a menagerie of love." -- Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medalist "Now hear this! The art in this book will astonish Earth!" -- Chris Raschka, Caldecott Medalist "Michael Hall's My Heart Is Like a Zoo is a combination of deceptive simplicity and gorgeous graphic design. Colorful, fun, and thoroughly enjoyable." -- Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Caldecott Honor Artist, New York Times bestselling author "The bold digital collages of zoo animals in this debut picture book are clear and bright, and the simple rhymes about feelings will have preschoolers savoring the words, joining in, and pointing at every playful zoo scene." -- ALA Booklist "Animals, adjectives and hearts-lots of hearts-combine in this bright, appealing selection, reminiscent of the works of Lois Ehlert." -- Kirkus Reviews "Children just learning about shapes will revel in these pages." -- Publishers Weekly "This title will have a wide audience, whether in a classroom, library, or at home. An outstanding choice for one-on-one sharing." -- School Library Journal
