Chris published his first picture book, America the Beautiful, in 2004. Since then he has authored and/or illustrated 13 more books, including Dinotrux, Revenge of the Dinotrux, Awesome Dawson, Substitute Creacher, Dear Fish and There’s Nothing to Do on Mars. In August of 2015, after 5 years of development, Dreamworks Animation brought Dinotrux to Netflix as an animated television show for children.
