Biography for Time Flies
Random House, Inc.
Eric Rohmann's first book for children, Time Flies, was named a Caldecott Honor Book in 1995,
and was called a splendid debut by Kirkus Reviews.
Eric holds degrees in fine arts from Arizona State University and Illinois State University. He is a former teacher, and has exhibited his artwork as numerous galleries and museums across the country.
Time Flies , a wordless picture book, is inspired by the theory that birds are the modern relatives of dinosaurs. This story conveys the tale of a bird trapped in a dinosaur exhibit at a natural history museum. Through Eric's use of color, readers can actually see the bird enter into a mouth of a dinosaur, and then escape unscathed.
Eric is a painter, printmaker, and a fine bookmaker, and he lives outside of Chicago.
