Sami Suomalainen

Sami Suomalainen won a national art competition for children at the age of six in his native Finland. He has since turned his passion into a career, illustrating several children's books, including Robert Munsch's Mud Puddle and The Dark (Annick Press). A longtime admirer of Wordsworth's work, Sami was thrilled to translate this poem into pictures. He lives with his wife and two cats in Toronto, Ontario, where he plays flamenco guitar and paints.
