Daniel Wiseman

daniel2-682x1024

DANIEL WISEMAN, a New York Times bestselling illustrator, likes to draw . . . a lot. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in Knoxville, TN, with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful sons. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly in his car, riding his bike or napping.

DON’T HUG DOUG
by Carrie Finison | Philomel | 2021
illus. by Daniel Wiseman
★ “”A cheerful approach to basic consent . . . An excellent update on the golden rule: treat people how they want to be treated.””
       —Kirkus, starred review
★ “Wiseman’s digital art has a simple, bold allure, supplemented by panels and speech bubbles. A gently humorous picture book that kindly, effectively highlights the importance of asking others before initiating physical contact.” 
       —Publisher’s Weekly, starred review
“Simple and effective in showing young viewers how to establish bodily autonomy . . . A great starting point for a conversation about boundaries and how to set them.”
       —BCCB

WHAT ABOUT X?
by Anne Marie Houppert | Appleseeds | 2021
illus. by Daniel Wiseman
“Houppert creates plenty of fun along the way. As the high-energy characters make their decisions, even pre-readers may want to suggest their own additions to the trip. Fun for reading aloud.”
     ― Booklist

THE WORLD NEEDS MORE PURPLE PEOPLE
by Kristen Bell and Ben Hart | Penguin Random House | 2020
illus. by Daniel Wiseman
Bestseller lists: NY Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Amazon, ABA Indiebound
• a #1 New York Times bestseller
• an Amazon.com Teacher’s Pick
• as seen on The Ellen Show
as seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
“A plethora of broad smiles and wide-open mouths, crank up the visual energy—and if the earnest overall tone doesn’t snag the attention of young audiences, a grossly literal view of the young narrator and a grandparent “snot-out-our-nose laughing” should do the trick.” 
     —Kirkus Reviews
“This book serves as a pep talk for contentious times by caring adults who want a nicer world—and that is no small thing.” 
       —Publisher’s Weekly
“Bell and Hart ­appear to have created the concept of “­purple ­people” for this book, and although the label is nonsensical, the message is inspiring: Ask questions, advocate for positive change, and have fun while collaborating with members of your family and community.” 
       —School and Library Journal

MY BROTHER DUCK?
by Pat Zietlow Miller | Chronicle | 2020
illus. by Daniel Wiseman
“[A]musing. . . This lighthearted story is a fresh take on welcoming a new sibling. Words like hypothesis, evidence, and inconclusive are used in a natural way which helps children build vocabulary. A recommended purchase for library collections.”
          —School Library Journal
“Redheaded Stella Wells is a self-described ‘fledging scientist’ with a chip on her shoulder (the new sibling kind) and a hypothesis to prove: ‘my baby brother might be a duck.’ First-person narration by Miller (When You Are Brave) skews straightforwardly precocious, while Wiseman’s (When Your Llama Needs a Haircut) round-headed cast and skillful wielding of pop-off-the-page colors (including a blazing duck yellow) exudes a cheery goodwill. However disgruntled Stella may be, her STEM skills are a model for any sibling, human or otherwise.”
         —Publishers Weekly
“[My Brother the Duck is] very jolly and absurdist, an original take on the new-baby ‘problem’ and a lighthearted introduction to the scientific method and critical thinking.”
     —Horn Book Magazine
“Quirky new-baby storytime fun to quack readers up. Just ducky.”
     —Kirkus Reviews
Wiseman supplies appropriately sunny cartoon illustrations (with a diverse cast that is plainly all human) to a cheery episode that fits the bill nicely for readers who relate to the young investigator in Andrea Beaty’s Ada Twist, Scientist (2016) and like STEM-ware.”
        —Booklist 

RAD!
by Anne Bustard | Abrams | 2020
illus. by Daniel Wiseman

illus. by Daniel Wiseman

“Eye-catching for young readers. . . . A fun, interactive read-aloud perfect for a ­pet-themed storytime.”
        —School Library Journal
“The inclusion of lively sound effects for each animal will indeed encourage interactive participation . . . and the bold illustrations make this a natural for read-alouds.”
        —Booklist 

PLAY THIS BOOK
by Jessica Young | Bloomsbury | 2018
illus. by Daniel Wiseman
• A CLEL (Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy) Bell Award Nomination, 2019
• An Indiana Early Literary Firefly Award Nomination, 2019
“Music-loving kids will go nuts for this interactive book. . . . Wiseman’s illustrations shine with bold strokes and bright colors and an inclusive cast of kid musicians. The book ends, of course, with thunderous applause.”
        —School Library Journal
“Wiseman’s art cleverly makes each instrument something readers can ‘play’ . . . Whether it’s storytime for a large group or one-on-one laptime, just try and stop kids from following this book’s titular encouragement.”
        —Kirkus Reviews

GOODBYE BRINGS HELLO
by Dianne White | Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | 2018

The brightly colored, naive-style illustrations add a cheerful positivity to the book.”
        —School Library Journal
