Short biography
Mercer Mayer was born in little Rock, Arkansas, grew up in Hawaii, and now lives on Long Island.   Before devoting all his time to writing and illustrating, he sold vacuum cleaners and fire alarms door-to-door and food-freezer plans by appointment.  Most recently he was an art director for an advertising agency.    Mr. Mayer studied at the Honolulu Academy of Arts and at the Art Student's League in New York, where he met his wife.  [from; A Boy, A Dog and a Frog  (1967)]
