Paul Schmid, Oliver and His Alligator

PaulSchmid

Join us as we celebrate our friend author/illustrator Paul Schmid's newest book, Oliver and His Alligator.

Oliver is nervous about the first day of school, so he picks up an alligator at the swamp, just in case. And boy, does it come in handy! Whenever anything scares Oliver-be it a teacher, a classmate, or the prospect of learning "everything"-the alligator makes the problem go away. Quickly, school becomes much simpler . . . and a little lonely. But Oliver knows "just "what to do!

Paul Schmid's gentle, funny tale about overcoming first day of school jitters is destined to become a modern classic that fans of Olivia and Kevin Henkes' books will love.

Paul Schmid's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all artists. In 2010, Paul was awarded a monthlong fellowship with Maurice Sendak. He lives in Seattle with his wife, Linda, and their daughter, Anna.
