About the Author

Tim Hopgood was six years old when he first heard Louis Armstrong's recording of "What a Wonderful World." Years later his daughter found a recording of the song in a flea market and gave it to him as a present. As soon as he heard Louis Armstrong's gravelly voice sing the first few lines, he knew he wanted to capture the joy of the song in a picture book


Bob Thiele (1922-1996) was a record producer and jazz radio host who worked with legendary artists such as Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, and B.B. King. His most successful song was Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World."
George David Weiss (1921-2010) was a highly prolific songwriter and arranger and film score composer. He wrote or rewrote lyrics to such classic songs as "Lullaby of Birdland" (Ella Fitzgerald), "Can't Help Falling in Love" (Elvis Presley), "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" (The Tokens), and "What a Wonderful World" (Louis Armstrong). In 1984, Weiss was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Tim Hopgood lives with his wife, children, and cats in North Yorkshire, England. A veteran graphic designer, he is the creator of more than ten picture books, including his book about colors, Wow! Said the Owl.

I dare you to read this without singing the song. Nice telling of the song. It made me think of the good things in this world.
