Art Seiden was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1923. After receiving a B.A. from Queens College (City University of New York), he studied at The Art Students League of New York for eight years. Seiden worked in advertising in his early career. When he began illustrating for children, his first assignment was to create the artwork for Margaret Wise Brown and Jean H. Berg’s Three Mice and A Rat (1950). Writing and illustrating his own work began in 1953 with the publication of My ABC Book from Wonder Books. Overall, Seiden illustrated more than 22 of his own books, and over 300 books for other authors. Art Seiden passed away in July of 2004.
