Biography of Aruego, Jose

Jose Aruego was born in Manila, the Philippines on August 9, 1932. He completed a law degree at the University of the Philippines but chose a career as an illustrator instead. He moved to New York City in the l950's to attend Parsons School of Design. His first job after art school was pasting feathers on angel wings in an art studio. Before he started illustrating books, he was a cartoonist for two years.

His first children's book, The King and His Friends, was published in 1969. During his lifetime, he illustrated 82 children's books including Herman the Helper written by Robert Kraus and We Hide, You Seek and Dance Away written by George Shannon. He worked on several books with his wife and long-time collaborator Ariane Dewey including Whose Mouse Are You?, Leo the Late Bloomer, and Gregory the Terrible Eater. In 1976, he was received with the Outstanding Filipino Abroad in the Arts Award from the government of the Philippines. He died on August 9, 2012 at the age of 80.

Biography of Kraus, Robert

Kraus was born on June 21, 1925, in Milwaukee Wisconsin. When he was a boy, he decided he wanted to become a cartoonist and sold his first work to a barbershop when he was 10. By the time he was a teenager he was selling to magazines like Esquire and Saturday Evening Post. He studied at the Art Students League in New York. A year later, he joined the staff of The New Yorker, where he worked for 20 years and created more than 40 covers and many hundreds of cartoons.

While at The New Yorker, he also wrote and illustrated more than two dozen children's books. He left The New Yorker in 1966 and founded Windmill Books, which published not only his own titles but also the works of such illustrators and authors as Jacob Lawrence, Whitney Darrow Jr., Edward Koren, Norman Rockwell, Mickey Spillane, William Steig, and Charles Addams. Within a year, the house had won a prestigious Caldecott Medal and over the years, published more than 200 titles on three continents.

In 1983 he began a syndicated Sunday comic feature, called Zap! The Video Chap, that was aimed at children addicted to the new phenomenon of video games. H. Robert Kraus died Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2001 at a nursing home in Kent, Connecticut at the age of 76.
