Born: Al Perkins' birthday is not the only mystery in his life.
Excellent Books: Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb; The Digging-est Dog, and several others--most from the 1960's and 1970's.
From His Life: Al Perkins wrote several amazing picture books. Then the mystery begins! Are any of you readers serious sleuths? If so, read on!
Advice for Aspiring Writers: Know your audience. Al's books are fun, fast-paced, and a little crazy. They have a strong rhythm. Kids love them.
Website: Now for the mystery. Random House's Author Page for Al Perkins gives you less information than this page. Who is Al Perkins? Why is he so impossible to find? Is "Al Perkins" even his real name? His books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies, yet he has no biography or website available. In fact, I can't find anything about his life. I'd love to know if anyone knows anything about him. I'm already a huge fan of his books.
