Transcript of Tomie dePaola

Biography Tomie dePaola in his Books Themes dePaola's Works Lesson Plans Born 1934 in Connecticut
Always wanted to be an author/illustrator
Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in 1956
Began illustrating in 1965. He has illustrated over 250 books and wrote nearly half of them. Several of Tomie's books are autobiographical. His favorite stories are those of his childhood.
Tomie is very famous for his art, which is simplistic and reflects children's art well. This works well for him in the common themes of his books.
Tomie is half Irish and half Italian, which influences the direction of his books as well. Multicultural- Tomie explores many cultures in his works, primarily Italian, Native American, Spanish, and Irish. He is sure to implement vocabulary from these cultures along with unique traditions.

Folktales- Many of dePaola's books include a supernatural element, along with a moral lesson learned.

Childhood- Tomie almost always includes a child as the maincharacter (especially autobiographical) or a character with child-like qualities. Strega Nona Christamas The Barker Twins Food Family Personification Bill and Pete The Strega Nona Series
