I have been a fan since 1971….Two of Tedd’s more serious works hang in my office and have for 30+ years. I was a friend in the 60’s and 70’s and would like to e-mail Mr. Arnold. Can’t seem to find his address…can you help????

I wanted to ask Mr. Arnold what was his inspiration to change his style of illustrating? There is a marketed difference between “No More Jumping On The Bed” and the characters in his other illustrations, like Huggly.

I have an example of Tedd Arnold’s more serious art work from the 70’s. I would like to be able to email Mr. Arnold and ask him about the sketch and learn more about the background of his earlier art. I have never seen a print done in this manner, looks like burnt onto to leather but it is on paper.I understand Mr. Arnold protects his privacy. If possible please pass this info on to his publisher or agent and help me please..

Thank you in advance.

Tedd Arnold has really become a hit with the children. They love the huggly books and also the Fly Guy Books. Keep writing Mr. Arnold.

Ha, I love this guy! With my last name, I have been called Fly Guy ever since I can remember, and now that I have children, you just know these are some of my favorites! GO FLY GUY!
