After co-authoring Loathsome Dragon with his wife, in 1987, he authored and illustrated Free Fall, which was awarded a 1989 Caldecott Honor Medal. This book is the first example of the predominant style of his self-authored books, which tell a fantastical, often dream-like story without words, only illustrations. He won the first-prize Caldecott Medal for three later self-authored books, Tuesday (1992), The Three Pigs (2002) and Flotsam (2007). Wiesner also won a Caldecott honor award in 2000 for Sector 7 (1999).
