Robert Weinstock (April 8, 1967, in Philadelphia) - an American children's book author and illustrator.[2]


In 2010 he received Maurice Sendak|Sendak fellowship.[3][4] His book Rude cakes won a Ezra Jack Keats Book Award|Ezra Jack Keats Honor in 2016[5][6]. Pete With No Pants was reviewed by Kate Quealy-Gainer[7] who writes that it is is a lovely, absurd little tale with humor both "jubilant and sardonic" and "it’s bound to be a familiar situation to many a carefree, nudist kid and their exasperated, clothes-demanding parent".


On October 7, 2003, Weinstock was hit by a truck resulting in serious injuries and loss of much of his Anosmia|ability to taste. An article in the New York Times detailed his experiences.[2]
