Among his many books for children are A Balloon for a Blunderbuss, I Keep Changing, Millionaires, Supposing, and Ounce Dice Trice (published by the New York Review Children's Collection). In 2008 he published two career-spanning collections of work, Inside Out: Selected Poetry and Translations and Outside In: Selected Prose. He lives in New York. Bob Gill is a designer, illustrator, copywriter, and teacher. He is the founder of Fletcher/ Forbes/Gill, which was later renamed Pentagram. He was elected to the New York Art Directors Club Hall of Fame in 1991, and the Designers and Art Directors Association of London recently presented him with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He lives in New York with his wife, New York Public Radio's Sara Fishko, their son Jack, and their daughter Kate.

Reviews

A 1960 text from Reid is paired to all-new illustrations from Gill that realize one child's beguiling hypotheses...And so it goes, supposition after childlike supposition, against scribbly, mostly black-and-white drawings with just a few strategic touches of color...As fascination with cause and effect is a classic phase of childhood, this book would seem to have a natural place in both bedrooms and classrooms... Kirkus Reviews There's an understated but fitting whimsy in Gill's artwork. Publishers Weekly A thought-provoking book about imaginative possibilities... leaving the reader to explore his/ her own imagination about what would happen in all these different situations. Angels and Urchins
