About Me

Hello. Welcome to my website.
Check out the children's books that I have written and illustrated.
I've also provided information on my forthcoming books, and book signings.

Please visit my "Step-By-Step" page.
It shows all the steps that I use to create my illustrations.

UPDATE 1/15/04

My new book, Truck Duck, is now out in stores. This is my new favorite book.

"On the ground, in the water, or through the air, here comes a parade of
spread-filling trucks, boats, and other vehicles, each piloted by a smiling
animal. The titular duck drives a dump truck, a "cab crab" waves from the
window of a yellow taxi, a "blimp chimp" steers a purple airship, and other
creatures ride on or in a tow truck, a motorcycle, a submarine, and more.
Rex colors each machine in glowing primaries, suspends them against bright
monochrome backgrounds, and adds just enough detail to tempt young viewers
to linger lovingly. Printed on stiff paper, these mighty machines will rivet
fans of all things big, noisy, and on the go."---Kirkus Reviews

is happening, and you can read all about it on my Forthcoming Books page.

Reading Program on the Other Projects page.

I've made some additions to the Illustrated by Michael Rex page,

Hopefully, I will soon have some very good news to share about a large project
brewing over at Scholastic. Keep your fingers crossed for me!---Mike

About Buying Books

I do not sell my books through this site. I have provided links to Amazon.com for most of the books,
but my site is not affiliated with them. I have used Amazon, and have experienced good service.
Feel free to use other on-line booksellers.
You can also ask for my books at your local bookstore, or at your public library.---Michael Rex
