David Kirk grew up in the wild and boundless suburbs of central Ohio, where he learned about small creatures, robots, and art. As a little boy, David Kirk’s fondest ambition was to grow up to be a fluffy bunny. While waiting for his wish to be fulfilled, he has busied himself with many other worthwhile projects. He is the creator of Miss Spider, who appears in many well-loved children’s books, in her own television series, and in several popular apps. Nova the Robot and the Biddle books are also his creations. His newest book, Oh So Tiny Bunny, is published by Feiwel and Friends. An inventor as well as an author, David started several toy companies, including Ovicular Toyworks, Hoobert Toys, David Kirk’s Fun House, and the Sunny Patch brand.
He lives in King Ferry, New York, with his wife Kathy and their daughters, Primrose and Wisteria. They are happily surrounded by a large and well-fed army of hamsters, chipmunks, squirrels, groundhogs, skunks, possums, deer, foxes, and most of all, bunnies.
