About the Author
Ezra Jack Keats (www.ezra-jack-keats.org), who died in 1983, was one of the first people to create a realistic, friendly, multi-ethnic urban setting in picture books for young children. His legacy lives on in the popularity of his most famous character, Peter - the star of "The Snowy Day, Whistle for Willie, Peter's Chair, A Letter to Amy, Goggles," and others.
