About Rodolfo Montalvo

Always the quiet shy kid at heart, Rodolfo spends a lot of his time drawing, painting, and looking for new stories to tell. He loves living near the ocean and waking up early to a clean sheet of paper. He also has a studio partner – his little dog named Wooky. His illustrated books include The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School and The Amazing William Dooley (both written by Fowler Dewitt), and the picture book Dear Dragon by Josh Funk.

Kirkus - Dear Dragon starred review.
