Jon Klassen is the rockstar of kid's authors. He's not only delighted kids and parents alike with his brilliant picture books I Want My Hat BackThis Is Not My Hat and the upcoming We Found A Hat, but did you know he worked as an animator on Kung Fu Panda, Coraline, and even created a music video for U2? So why did he refuse to draw when he was a little kid at school in Canada?
