Most of his books are illustrated by his wife, Aliki, and include stories about Edward and Elizabeth (I Wish I Was Sick, Too! and No School Today!), a series about Aunt Nina, the adventures of Leo and Emily (such as What’s Wrong with a Van?), and the popular Fieldmouse family (Six New Students and others).
