The author and illustrator, David Wiesner, is famous for creating other wordless texts, such as Tuesday and Free Fall.His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the United States and abroad.

As his parents tell him it was time to go, he decided to continue the chain by using the camera to take a picture of himself. According to the Kirkus Reviews, “From arguably the most inventive and cerebral visual storyteller in children's literature comes a wordless invitation .
