What is this?

Hi, I’m Adam Rex. As I write this I’m 49, but enough on the thin end of 49 that saying so has started to feel like lying. I’ve been a professional illustrator since 1994, and a published creator of kid’s books since 2003. I’ve published more than 40 picture books and novels, and my work has been adapted for film and television.

I’m liking social media less and less, but I’ll miss interacting with other people who love kid’s books and art and fiction. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. I’ll be sharing what I’ve been making, including:

—News about forthcoming books and projects

—Behind the scenes sketches and thoughts and process stuff

—Special offers and contests

—Things I’m not going to share anywhere else

—Answers to your questions!

Stay up-to-date

You won’t have to worry about missing anything. Every new edition of the newsletter goes directly to your inbox.

Hi, I'm Adam Rex—I write and illustrate kid's books. Mostly this is about that.
