Frank Viva

Frank Viva is a Toronto-based illustrator and designer whose art has appeared in The New York Times and on the cover of The New Yorker. His first picture book Along a Long Road was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award for Illustration. His picture book Outstanding in the Rain (Tundra), uses words, pictures, and die-cuts in a tale about a boy spending his birthday at an amusement park. His middle readers novel Sea Change (Tundra) is a warm, funny, and innovatively designed coming-of-age story, about a boy relegated for the summer to the very edge of the world: a fishing village in Nova Scotia.
