Jon J Muth's enchanting picture books include his Caldecott Honor Book Zen Shorts and four companion books featuring Stillwater, Koo, and their wonderful young friends. His book The Three Questions, based on a short story by Tolstoy, was called "quietly life-changing" by The New York Times Book Review. And The Horn Book called Jon's Stone Soup "delicious and satisfying." His exquisitely beautiful books have been translated into more than fifteen languages and are cherished by readers of all ages. Jon lives in New York State with his wife and their four children.
Praise for The Three Questions
"Quietly life changing..." --The New York Times
* "A soaring achievement." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Moral without being moralistic, the tale sends a simple and direct message unfreighted by pomp or pedantry. Muth's art is as carefully distilled as his prose. A series of misty, evocative watercolors in muted tones suggests the figures and their changing relationships to the landscape." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
