Illustrator for DEAR DRAGON: Rodolfo Montalvo

I’ve got great news, everyone! The creative/editorial team at Viking Children’s went out and found the perfect artist to illustrate DEAR DRAGON. From Publisher’s Weekly Children’s Bookshelf Rights Report:


Rodolfo Montalvo was most recently the recipient of the SCBWI Mentorship Award at the 2013 Summer Conference. His first published works were illustrations for The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School, by Fowler DeWitt, (the second book in the series, The Amazing Wilmer Dooley, will be available later this summer).

Check out his work at – and I’m sure you’ll be as excited as I am that he’s been tapped to illustrate DEAR DRAGON. For more Rodolfo goodies, check out his interview with Kidlit Artists from last October.
