Marc Brown

Christina Markris Brown

“The most interesting—and the funniest—things happen in real life.”—Marc Brown

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Marc Brown is the renowned illustrator of Judy Sierra's Wild About Books and ZooZical, but is best known worldwide as the creator of Arthur the aardvark, the star of many picture books and the five-time Emmy Award-winning TV show. He has once again drawn on his love of American folk art and his time living at Pilot Hill Farm with peacocks, otters, cows, goats, chickens, and pigs to inspire his rich and brilliantly hued paintings in Wild About You! He lives in New York City and on Martha's Vineyard with his wife, artist and psychologist Laurie Krasny Brown, and their cats, Lola and Romeo. You can visit him at MarcBrownStudios.com.
