Thomas Rockwell (Based Upon The Book By) Thomas Rockwell is the author of the beloved children’s book How to Eat Fried Worms, winner of the Mark Twain Award, the California Young Reader Medal, and the Sequoyah Award.
Hailing from an artistic family, it’s no surprise Rockwell became an author of children’s books. His father was artist Norman Rockwell and his mother was an unpublished writer, who bought her children lots of books and often read aloud to them, even after they had learned to read. Rockwell’s older brother became an artist and his younger brother became a sculptor.
Rockwell also penned Rackety-Bang And Other Verses, Humpf, Squawwwk!, Hiding Out, and The Thief, all illustrated by his wife Gail Sudler. The Portmanteau Book was also illustrated by his wife, with help from their two children, Barnaby and Abigail.
Other Rockwell titles include The Neon Motorcycle, How to Eat Fried Worms and Other Plays, Hey, Lover Boy, Oatmeal Is Not For Moustaches, How to Fight a Girl, and How To Get Fabulously Rich.
