David Greenberg was born in Brooklyn, NY, went to Reed College, and lives in the Northwest. He and his wife Susan preside over a recombined family of four, Sam, Evan, Alexandra, and Jane (who has four legs and a tail and will happily eat off the floor or table or even the street itself). With the exception of one historical novel (A Tugging String), David has written poetry picture books exclusively, most with LB, but with FSG, Dutton, and Bantam as well. Titles include, Slugs, Bugs!, Skunks!, Snakes!, Whatever Happened to Humpty Dumpty?, Enchanted Lions, among many. He is director of the Oregon Coast Children's Book Writers Workshop (www.occbww.com) and Publish a Picture Book, Intensive Online Course ( www.publishapicturebook.com). He visits schools nationally and around the world to read from his works and teach writing.
