Can you guess what famous author just celebrated their birthday?
Here are a few clues:
- He was born in Little Rock, Arkansas on December 30, 1943.
- He’s written and illustrated over 300 children’s books.
- His most famous character appeared in his 1975 book, Just For You.
- Two of the main character’s favorite pets are a grasshopper and a spider.
- He’s going to be 69 this year so that means next year is the BIG 70, so we need to start planning a BIG celebration.
