Ezra Jack Keats

Born: Brooklyn, United States of America

Ezra Jack Keats was an American author and illustrator of children's books. Keats was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on March 11, 1916. He illustrated jackets for adult and juvenile books and provided drawings for almost a dozen children's books. He is the author of The Snowy Day (1962), a recipient of the Caldecott Medal and one of the first picture books in which the central character is a minority child. Keats used cut-out and gouache collage to create cityscapes that carry a strong dose of urban reality: grime, graffiti, and a lot of energy. He also wrote for the under-five audience in Whistle for Willie (1966), Peter's Chair (1967), Goggles (1969), and Apt. 3 (1971), which focus on learning new things — how to whistle, outwit a tougher kid, or cope with emotion. Keats died at the age of 67 on May 6, 1983.
