Chris Gall Illustrator and Author

Children’s Books
Chris Gall has been drawing pictures and writing stories for as long as he can remember. When he was caught drawing pictures on his desk in second grade, his teacher made him clean all the desks in the classroom. She suggested that he might be an artist someday. He won a Read Magazine Young Writer’s Award in 7th grade, and that inspired him to write stories to go with his art. His first book, America the Beautiful, was a Publishers Weekly Best Children’s Book of 2004. There’s Nothing To Do On Mars was a 2008 Kirkus Best Children’s Book, and Dinotrux was a 2009 Publisher’s Weekly Best Children’s Book.
