In 1982, he began work on his first children's picture book, Where the River Begins.

These unique books have been honored with numerous awards, including the prestigious Christopher Award, the John Burroughs Award, and the New York Times Award for best illustration. Lenny Hort is the author of several acclaimed books for children, including The Boy Who Held Back the Sea. Mr. Hort lives in New Jersey with his wife and their three daughters.

Reviews

The classic folktale about the Dutch boy who saved his country from flooding by plugging a leak in a dike is illustrated with Locker's characteristically sprawling landscapes. PW said, ``The scenery is magnificent, creating a chiaroscuro effect that is visually stunning.'' All ages. (Sept.)

"Visually stunning."--Publishers Weekly

"Locker's depiction of nature overpowering humanity is especially significant to the story and to the Dutch people who have spent centuries battling the sea."--School Library Journal
