About Vincent X. Kirsch:
VINCENT X. KIRSCH is an author and illustrator living in Los Angeles. He spent over thirty years in New York City before heading for the sunny side of the country. Before he happened into picture books, Vincent kept busy doing things such as working as a stockboy at the original Dean & Deluca (he later became the visual merchandiser, overseeing everything visual for all stores around the world), serving as the print art director at Showtime, designing Broadway posters, designing windows and displays for Bergdorf Goodman, and illustrating book jackets, to name a few. Then… one day, out of the blue, an editor called from BloomsburyUSA Children’s Books and asked if he was interested in doing picture books. His answer was “Yes! Very interested!!”

Freddie & Gingersnap Meet a Cloud to Keep (Disney, Jan. 2015):
Freddie and Gingersnap meet a cloud. It's a peculiar cloud. It sings a song. It asks questions. It knows magic. And Freddie wants to keep it. . .but Gingersnap knows you can't keep a cloud. Or could you?
Enjoy this winsome reminder that sometimes the best and only place to keep something wonderful is in the heart.
Freddie & Gingersnap (Disney, Jan. 2014):
Freddie is a little dinosaur that wants more than anything to know what clouds are like. Gingersnap is a little dragon that wishes more than anything to fly. When Gingersnap in a failed first attempt at flight falls right on top of Freddie, the two glare at each other. Then they growl and hiss at each other. But when their individual howls and stomps find a common rhythm, their attempts at aggression transform into a dance of friendship and brings each of them that much closer to realizing his or her dream.
"Young listeners are sure to enjoy the text’s vivid aural language and the Little Shop of Horrors–style illustrations...This makes a good story hour choice, with lots of potential for creative drama." --Booklist
"This stylish tale of an unlikely friendship has an infectious rhythm."--School Library Journal
