He is the author and illustrator of the New York Times bestselling picture books Duck & Goose, Duck, Duck, Goose, How Rocket Learned to Read, and Rocket Writes A Story among others. These picture books have inspired many board books including What’s Up, Duck?, Duck and Goose Find a Pumpkin, Goose Needs a Hug, and leveled readers like Drop it Rocket and Rocket the Brave. Tad lives in Brooklyn with his wife, 2 kids (when they are not away at college) and a dog named Rocket, who has not yet learned how to read.
