How to Babysit a Leopard:
Adventures in Art with Illustrators Ted and Betsy Lewin
Meet artists Ted and Betsy Lewin, two beloved authors and illustrators of award-winning books for children. Each has received the Caldecott Honor—Ted in 1994 for Elisa Bartone’s Peppe the Lamplighter, and Betsy in 2001 for Doreen Cronin’s Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type—and, collectively, they have written and/or illustrated nearly 200 books.
World travelers, they have also led lives of adventure that have taken them to every corner of the world. These are the subjects of their recent collaboration, How to Babysit a Leopard: And Other True Stories from our Travels Across Six Continents. Learn about the places they’ve visited, which have inspired their art, and create an artwork of your own inspired by far-away places. A book signing will follow. A special installation of their original picture book art will be on view!
