Cartoonist Jeff Smith is best known as the creator of the self-published comic book series BONE. BONE won numerous American awards including 10 Eisner Awards and 11 Harveys, as well as European awards from Italy, Germany, and the French Alph Art.

In 2005, BONE was chosen to launch the first graphic novel series for children from a major publishing house, Graphix, an imprint of Scholastic Books. There have been exhibitions of his work, and in 2009 Smith was the subject of an Emmy Award winning documentary called The Cartoonist: Jeff Smith, BONE, and the Changing Face of Comics

Later works include critically acclaimed Little Mouse Gets Ready, a comic for emerging readers that received a Geisel Honor in 2009.

Jeff's picture book Smiley's Dream Book was published to great acclaim in 2018. "If you plan to steer a child toward the BONE books later (and you should!), this is a terrific introduction to a world full of wonder and unexpected rewards." — The New York Times.
