Matt is also an award-winning children's book author and illustrator. He has illustrated twenty-nine books and written and illustrated seven more since he began his career back in 1985, including Thank You, Sarah (Simon & Schuster), Gaijin: An American Prisoner of War (Disney-Hyperion), and Because I Could Not Stop My Bike.
