Neil Waldman is the writer and illustrator of more than fifty children's books. His books have won the Christopher Award, the National Jewish Book Award and the School Library Best Book Award. He is also the founder/director of the Fred Dolan Art Academy in the Bronx. Al and Teddy is one of his picture books. All proceeds from sales of "AL and TEDDY" will be used to support the young artists of the Fred Dolan Art Academy, a free Saturday school designed to help Bronx youngsters go to art college. Founded in 2006, twenty-three students have graduated from the academy, all going on to college with scholarships. (Bowker Author Biography)
