David LaRochelle, a former elementary school teacher, is the author and illustrator of numerous picture books, including The Best Pet of All, a Children's Book Sense Top Ten selection and one of Child Magazine's Best Books of 2004. His latest book, Absolutely, Positively Not, is his first novel. It is the humorous look at the life of Steven DeNarski, a sixteen-year-old boy who doesn't know whether he will pass his driver's test or if he'll ever understand his parents. But there is one thing Steven knows for sure: He is absolutely, positively NOT gay. David has also published puzzle books and books of family activities. His work has appeared in Cricket, Spider, and Cicada magazines. He illustrates the nationally syndicated newspaper column, Donna's Day. When David is not writing, illustrating, or visiting schools as the author/illustrator-in-residence, he enjoys going to theater, entering contests, and orienteering. He also loves to carve pumpkins and his creations have been featured for several years on Good Morning America. David LaRochelle lives in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.
