Christopher Paul Curtis grew up in Flint, Michigan and is the oldest son of a couple of voracious readers.  Immediately after high school he began working on the assembly line of Flint Plant Number One. His job was hanging doors. He soon developed an aversion to getting into automobiles. Especially Buicks. The factory also saved his life because it is where he began writing. His first book was The Watsons Go To Birmingham 1963. His latest children’s book is The Journey of Little Charlie.
