More About Marcus Pfister
Marcus Pfister was born the 30th of July 1960 in Bern, Switzer-land. He attended the Art School of Bern and then completed an apprenticeship as a Graphic Designer. From 1981-1983 he worked as a Graphic Designer at the publicity agency Alexandre Ott in Zurich. He then took off six months and traveled across the United States, Canada and Mexico. When he re-turned to Switzerland he started working as an independent Graphic Artist. Between 1984 and 1985 he made the sketches for his first picture book “The Sleepy Owl". It was published in 1986 by North-South Books, this was the beginning of a long collaboration. Until 1992, Marcus worked simultaneously as a Graphic Designer and as an author/illustrator of children's books.

One can see this in "The Magic Book" with an elaborate folder-technique, the split pages in "Milo and the Magical Stones" which tells a story with two different endings, and in "The Rainbow Fish" series with the use of holographic foil. There is always a surprise for his readers with new and exciting effects. He is now concentrating on developing new characters and artistic concepts for his picture books.

THIS BOOK IS HARD TO BEAT! Aug 3, 2004
My mother gave this book to my oldest son when he was 3 and he fell in love with the story! He is now 5 and it's still his favorite book. It's a wonderful lesson about how Leo the Lion's arrogance caused him to be outcast and "dethroned" by the other animals in his "kingdom." Looking back, Leo was able to see how useless he'd been as a king because of his being so arrogant and self-centered. By helping several of the other animals when they were having difficulties, Leo was able to prove to the other animals that he had genuinely changed and become a better "person." In the end the other animals invited Leo back to be their king again. This teaches such a wonderful lesson to children and I have bought at least a dozen copies of it to give to my children's schools and for birthday gifts for their friends. I have an extensive library of books for my children, but this book is one of the very best.
