Title Profile & Character Information

Stitches

Annotation
Caldecott Award-winning book illustrator Small has a shattering story to tell, and he tells it in pictures (just not for kids). His radiologist father experimented on him as a child, which led to his throat cancer and the removal of a vocal chord. Wisely, he left home at age 16 and found himself through art. Look for BEA and ALA appearances, and get multiples of this.
