Children’s Book Author/Illustrator David Catrow Visits the Library

“Colorful,” “funny,” “zany” all describe the artwork of David Catrow. The award-winning children’s book illustrator and author pays a visit to the Dayton Metro Library on Saturday, September 28, with free presentations at the Wilmington Stroop Branch in Kettering, and the Main Library in downtown Dayton.

Catrow has more than 70 works in print, including his own Max Spaniel books and the ALA Notable Children’s book I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont. He’s worked in visual development for films such as Horton Hears A Who and Despicable Me, and his syndicated editorial cartoons have appeared in over 1,000 newspapers.

At the Library, Catrow will talk about his style of watercolor and colored pencil art, his successful career, and his belief that everyone is an artist. He welcomes questions from the audience.

“A great children’s book can bring people together in unexpected ways,” he says.
