Matthew Reinhart - As a child

After graduating, Matthew took a year off to work in New York City as, believe it or not, a technician for the Eye Bank for Sight Restoration. He realized he wasn't cut out to be a doctor and, with his heart lying in art, Matthew decided to study industrial design at the prestigious Pratt Institute in New York City.
As an artist

Matthew focused on toy design at the Pratt Institute and before long met up with the prince of pop-ups, Robert Sabuda. "We hit it off," Matthew says of Robert Sabuda. "I began to work with him as an intern during school and learned all about making pop-ups. It's hard, and I never thought it would all sink in, but one day, it did! Now, I'm working on dream projects like Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs and the sequels. I am very thankful for everything I have and everyone who's helped me. Life is good, eh?”

Robert Sabuda - As a child:

Today I work in my studio in New York City, which I share with my partner, children’s book creator Matthew Reinhart. We love making books. It’s hard work, but the best part is not having to worry about making a mess. When being an artist is your job, you can make as many messes as you want to!

1. He loves to read comic books.
2. He doesn’t know how to drive a car.
3. He’ll eat almost anything chocolate.
4. He hates olives.
5. He loves to sleep.
6. He does yoga – poorly.
7. His favourite television show is The Simpsons because it reminds him of his own family.
8. He doesn’t have a favourite colour.
9. Winter is his favourite season.
10. His favourite movie is The Wizard of Oz and he still cries when Toto escapes from the Wicked Witch’s castle.
