Can little Schmitty save the day? Kids of all ages will have fun reading Schmitty The Weather Dog’s adventure as she goes from daydreaming to doing by overcoming obstacles and learning about the weather to help her two-legged dad.

Simon Estrada Head ShotSimon Estrada was one of those students who drew cartoons in his notebooks rather than taking notes. All this is due to being raised on Dr. Seuss books, Looney Tunes and Popeye The Sailor Man. Simon has since earned a BA in Fine Arts from the University of California Santa Barbara, and a BA in Illustration with an emphasis on Entertainment Arts from Art Center College of Design. Schmitty The Weather Dog: Daydream is Simon’s first children’s book of many more to come. Since illustrating Schmitty’s book, Simon has been the art director for a new animated network TV series for the Jim Henson Co. and is creating the characters for an upcoming animated featured film. Every year he participates in the annual Pasadena Chalk Festival. Simon resides in Pasadena, CA.
