More About Marcus Pfister

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. In 1992 he burst onto the international scene with his book "The Rainbow Fish", which convinced him to focus solely on writing and illustrating his own books.

Up to now 49 books of Marcus Pfister have been published. They have been translated into more than 50 languages. The total number of published copies has exceeded 30 millions. As an illustrator, Marcus has never bound himself to a definite style of art and surprises his audience again and again with new techniques and images. 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. Marcus Pfister has four children and lives with his family in Bern, Switzerland. His book signing tours have taken him to Korea, Japan, the United States and many European Countries. His hobbies are photographing wildlife in the Rainforest and playing

Marcus Pfister currently resides in Berne.

Reviews - What do customers think about Milo & the Magical Stones (Japanese Language Edition)?

A sweet book  Aug 22, 2003
My 6 year old liked this book quite a bit. And so did my 8 year old.
I only don't like it's size,too tall to fit on any of my bookshelves, even taller then my typical tall children books.Such a nice book, but now it has no where to sit.
Which Ending Would You Choose?  Jun 29, 2003
Beautifully illustrated and thought evoking story which allows young readers (and their parents/teachers/siblings) to see what an impact different choices make in lives both factual and fictional.

Milo and his mice friends on their very special island find a mysterious stone and then need to decide what next step to take. Pfister gives a choice for the reader: happy ending or sad ending. Very clever and both endings should be read so that children can understand how choices build upon choices both in writing, creativity and in real life.

Great book for adults as well and Grandparents may want to keep a copy on hand for when their grand children come visit.

Helping kids to Write/ the concept of ending a story  Jul 26, 2001
This book so clearly shows students/children the effect the ending has on a story. It's great if you're teaching students or your own child how to write stories. Just reading it gives them perspective and, with each of their stories, they can write two different endings and choose the better one. This book is FANTASTIC! Get it!
Milo and the Magical Stones  Jul 30, 2000
Milo and his mice friends find some glowing, magical stones which led them into making a bad choice or a good choice. This book offers two different endings- a happy one or a sad one. This is a great story for all young children to enjoy. Marcus Pfister's illustrations and texture on the pages capture both children's eyes and hands. After reading the happy ending to my kindergarten class, they could not wait to hear what happened in the sad ending. I highly recommend this book.
A Real Page Turner for Children!  Jun 16, 2000
This is a great story to read out loud to a child at the end ofthe day. My kids couldn't wait to see if Milo and the other mice madea good choice or a bad choice in how to handle the magical stones. As a matter of fact, my kids (ages 10,9,and 6) made me go back and read the other ending right away. This book teaches a hard lesson about greed and covetousness without being too preachy. My kids were enthralled with the glowing stones, and the beautiful illustrations. This is a favorite book in our house - I would buy it for any child's library.
