Dennis McDermott Books & Biography
Dennis McDermott admires the golden age of illustrations from such masters as Jessie Willcox Smith, Howard Pyle, and N. C. Wyeth to develop his own pleasantly old-fashioned style. His pictures have been praised as "lavish, beckoning readers to curl up and be transported to unexplored realms" (Publishers Weekly). He has illustrated Oom Razoom, by Diane Wolkstein, and Andrew Lang's The Flying Ship, which received a Parents' Choice Gold Award in 1995. Dennis McDermott lives in Mattituck, New York, where he also teaches art classes to students in the community.
