About the author (1986)

Born February 10, 1934, in Hudson, NH; died of cancer June 23, 2003, in Washington, DC. Artist, educator, and illustrator. Morrill was an award-winning children's book illustrator. Originally he contemplated becoming a dancer, he was talented in tap but decided not to make it his profession because the physically demanding career would likely not last long. He decided to focus on art and enrolled in the Boston Museum School of Art. After military service interruptions of his studies he returned to Boston and completed his certificate in 1960, an earned a B.S. in art education from Tufts University that same year Beginning with Anne Eliot Crompton's 1971 book, The Sorcerer, Morrill found great success in his new chosen occupation, and contributed illustrations-mostly to children's books-throughout the 1970s, 1980s, and into the 1990s. His work appears in more than one hundred books, and he became especially well known for his animal illustrations. Morrill won countless prizes for his art, including two American Institute of Graphic Arts awards and numerous Children's Book of the Year citations from the Child Study Association of America. His illustrations accompany the text of such well-known children's authors as Eve Bunting, Matt Christopher, Kenneth Grahame, George Selden, Walter Dean Myers, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Judy Delton, and Mary Calhoun. He also illustrated the quirky "Bunnicula" series by James Howe and the Freddy books by Walter R. Brooks. In addition to his children's book illustrations, Morrill also created original art for puzzles, as well as pursuing a painting career.
