He studied for a year at the Elliot Pearson School of Child Studies at Tufts University.

Booklist Review

Ages 5-9. Lighthearted cartoon illustrations capture the action when Megan leaves the gate open to the "dumb" pigs' pen. Pandemonium breaks loose as these freedom-loving creatures pig out in the kitchen, burst into the school principal's office, and commandeer the school bus.
