Frank Asch - Author/Illustrator
Frank Asch was born and raised in rural New Jersey. His earliest interests were in science, specifically physics and astronomy, yet by the time he entered college he was determined to pursue a career in the Arts. Even before graduating from The Cooper Union with a degree in Fine Art, he published his first children's book, George's Store in 1968.
Since then he has written over 70 children's books, including Star Jumper: Journal of a Cardboard Genius, the IRA Children's Choice Award-winning Mr. Maxwell's Mouse and its follow-up, Mrs. Marlowe's Mice.
He has traveled widely, married and raised a son who has also pursued writing and illustrating as a career. Mr. Asch currently divides his time between Vermont and Hawaii.
