About the author

Frank Asch (b.1946) is an American author and illustrator of books for the younger reader. He was born in New Jersey, and studied art at Cooper Union. He wrote his first book in his early twenties as a way of earning some extra money, but writing and illustrating have become his full time career. Many of his books have animal heroes and heroines: bears are a particular favourite, and he is the author of the popular Moonbear series. At least one of his books features a horse: Goodnight Horsey.
