Matthew Cordell

From Caldecott Medalist Matthew Cordell, Explorers is a new picture book about an extraordinary trip to a museum.
When a family goes to a local museum, a boy notices a homeless man sitting outside, making brightly colored origami birds. He convinces his dad to buy a bird the man makes just for him.
Once inside the museum, his little sister takes the bird and launches it into the air. Is it lost? Soon another boy helps him look, and the paper bird brings two families - and two new friends - together.
With the style he used in Wolf in the Snow, Matthew Cordell shows how an ordinary family outing can be both extraordinary and magical.

Matthew Cordell is the author and illustrator of Caldecott award winner Wolf in the Snow, Trouble Gum, Another Brother, hello! hello!, and Wish . He has illustrated the books of renowned authors including Philip Stead ( Special Delivery ), Rachel Vail (the Justin Case series), and Gail Carson Levine ( Forgive Me, I Meant To Do It ). He lives outside of Chicago with his wife, the novelist Julie Halpern, and their two children.
