Ezra Jack Keats author, illustrator
Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) was a pioneer in American children's literature. He based the lives of his multiracial characters on his childhood but added loving parents, friends and pets. He wanted no child to be an outsider. "If we could see each other exactly as the other is," he wrote, "this would be a different world."
