He is the illustrator of Pam Muñoz Ryan's The Dreamer , a Pura Belpré Award winner, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book, and an ALA Notable. Sís's many celebrated picture books, including Starry Messenger: Galileo Galilei , Tibet Through the Red Box , and The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain , are treasured by readers all over the world. His most recent picture book, Ice Cream Summer , was hailed by Kirkus Reviews in a starred review as “an encomium to summer, to the power of learning, and to that beloved, creamy-cold treat.” When Peter isn’t traveling the globe eating ice cream, he creates picture books and fine art that can be seen in galleries, museums, and public spaces from New York to Los Angeles, London to Prague, and lots of cities in between.
