Tedd Arnold (born January 20, 1949 in Elmira, New York, United States) is a children's book writer and illustrator. He has written over 50 books, and he has won the "Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor" for his book "Hi! Fly Guy!". He currently lives in Elmira, New York, United States.


Tedd graduated from the University of Florida with a BFA.[1] He worked as a commercial illustrator before beginning his career writing children's books. Arnold met his wife, Carol, while living in Florida. Carol, a former kindergarten teacher, encouraged him to write and illustrate children's books. His sons, Walter and William, served as the inspiration for some of his characters and stories.


His writing and art is in the style of Calvin and Hobbes mixed with The Far Side, and a bit of Dr. Seuss.[citation needed]. Tedd's first book, No Jumping on the Bed! was an IRA-CBC Children's Choice book and was also selected as a Parents Magazine 50 All-Time Best Children's Book. He is a two-time winner of the ALA's Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor both for Hi! Fly Guy and for I Spy Fly Guy.[1]
