Illustrator Christopher Eliopoulos appears at Secret Garden Books on Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at 7:00 PM!
We can all be heroes. That’s the inspiring message of this New York Times bestselling picture book biography series from historian and author Brad Meltzer, illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos.. Each picture book in this series is a biography of a significant historical figure, told in a simple, conversational, vivacious way, and always focusing on a character trait that makes the person a role model for kids. The heroes are depicted as children throughout, telling their life stories in first-person present tense, which keeps the books playful and accessible to young children. And each book ends with a line of encouragement, a direct quote, photos, a timeline, and a source list.
The illustrator is touring in support of the two newest releases, I Am Jane Goodall and I Am George Washington.
Christopher Eliopoulos began his illustration career as a letterer for Marvel, and has worked on thousands of comics, including”Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius,” “Pet Avengers,” and “Cow Boy,” all of which he wrote and illustrated. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and their identical twin sons.”
