Chris Van Dusen appears at the 2011 National Book Festival. Speaker Biography: Chris Van Dusen writes: "As a child, my brothers and I would spend hours drawing pictures. We didn't have video games or computers to entertain us, so we drew instead. I had no idea back then that I'd end up writing and illustrating children's books when I grew up." Since then, Van Dusen has been the writer, illustrator or both of many acclaimed children's books, including illustrating Kate DiCamillo's "Mercy Watson." His new book is "King Hugo's Huge Ego." He is also one of the illustrators of "The Exquisite Corpse Adventure," an original story written for the Library of Congress Read.gov website.
