Author and Caldecott Medalist Matthew Cordell is known for putting his heart into every word and brushstroke of his work. According to Cordell, the most consistent theme in his life has been his desire for drawing.
His newest work, Hello, Neighbor!: The Kind and Caring World of Mister Rogers, available Spring 2020, is the only authorized picture book biography of Mister Rogers and a labor of love for Cordell. He is both the author and the illustrator of this moving and informative picture book that explores the history of the acclaimed television show and its inspiring creator in an accessible way for children.
