Best-selling author and illustrator, Trevor Romain sees himself as Monty Python meets Dr. Seuss at Jerry Seinfeld’s house in Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood. He currently has more than 30 published books with over one million copies in print that have been translated into 14 languages. Now, five of Trevor’s most influential books are part of the Comical Sense of Trevor Romain video collection which will eventually include 15 original titles.
Besides writing, illustrating, speaking, drinking tea, and avoiding trouble, the South African-born Romain cares a lot about sick children. Much of his motivation comes from the experiences he had at the Children’s Hospital at Brakenridge. “I learned more from those children than I ever learned at school,” says Romain. “And I have taken what I learned from them and woven their compassion, bravery, humor and love of life into the books I write.”
Trevor has won many awards for his books and videos with six of his non-fiction books receiving Parents Choice and Parent’s Council awards and two of his videos receiving the Cine Golden Eagle award for 2005. He has appeared on numerous television and radio talk shows throughout the United States and overseas. The new videos have been endorsed by “Kid’s First!” in terms of their appeal, content, production quality and developmental benefits.
