About the Illustrator
Eddie Gordon is a husband, dad and graphic designer in Arizona. He spends any free time trying to learn guitar, fixing things his kids break and attempting to impress his wife (with varying degrees of success).
Readers will be intrigued with the story of the cinema’s Golden Age in this fun picture book by Merry Gordon and illustrated by her husband Eddie Gordon. The story is interesting and great fun with rhyming, as well as references to making money taking photos at Tinseltown and Hollywoodland and what to do when the theaters shut down. But, it’s the amazing black and white pictures that helps make the story really come to life. The idea of crafting the pictures in black and white to match the time period was genius. Readers are going to thoroughly enjoy this marvelous book!
