The Author in You - Writer's Toolbox: Matt Tavares
When Matt Tavares was studying art at Bates College, he had no intention of becoming a children's book writer and illustrator. During his junior year, a friend showed him several books by author/illustrator Chris Van Allsburg and Tavares was hooked. His first original creation, Zachary's Ball, is a story that embodies every young baseball fan's wildest dream. Tavares has used the game of baseball as a theme for his other self-illustrated titles as well, including Mudball, Oliver's Game, and Henry Aaron's Dream.
