Jeff Mack is the creator of picture books and early graphic novel readers including Hush Little Polar Bear and the Hippo and Rabbit series. He has also illustrated award winning picture books and chapter books such as Eve Bunting's Hurry! Hurry! and James Howe's Bunnicula and Friends.
Originally from Syracuse, NY, Mack grew up fascinated by monsters and robots. He built his own pinball machines from cardboard boxes, and created comic books about his four siblings being devoured by monsters.
In 1995 he began painting murals for restaurants, hospitals, and libraries. Five years later, he was writing and illustrating children's books in an ever-increasing range of styles.
Now at home in Western Massachusetts, he continues to write, paint, and talk with school groups about his various projects. Visit him at www.JeffMack.com.
