From Carson' website:
I’m the illustrator of a number of books for kids, including New York Times bestsellers Home (which I also wrote), The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, The Composer Is Dead by Lemony Snicket, and The Wildwood Chronicles by Colin Meloy (who happens to be my husband). I’m also an occasional maker of editorial illustration (I’ve worked for The New York Times and The New Yorker, among many others) and an even more occasional fine artist represented by Nationale in Portland. And I’m the illustrator-in-residence for the band The Decemberists. I live on a farm in Oregon with Colin, our two sons, one cat, one stray cat, two llamas, two goats, eight chickens, a family of barn owls and an unfathomable multitude of tree frogs.
