Peter Sís is an internationally acclaimed illustrator, author, and filmmaker with more than twenty books to his credit. His vast body of work, including the celebrated titles Starry Messenger: Galileo Galilei, Tibet Through the Red Box, and The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain, have earned him a MacArthur Fellowship, Hans Christian Anderson Award, Sibert Award, and three Caldecott Honors.

For his most recent picture book, Ice Cream Summer, Peter sampled countless flavors. His favorite (at the moment) is mango.

Born in Brno, Czechoslovakia, Peter Sís now lives in New York with his family.

Dear Grandpa,
Summer is going well.
I am very busy. But don't worry, I am not forgetting about school! I read every day. I practice my math facts. And I am even studying world history!

Peter Sís's delicious tongue-in-cheek vision of summer dishes up the whole scoop on everyone's favorite frozen treat — and proves that ice cream is every bit as enriching for the mind as it is for the taste buds. Readers everywhere will be begging for seconds and thirds!
