About the Author
Stan and Jan Berenstain were already successful cartoonists for magazines and adult humor books when they began writing children's books. The first story starring the bear family, The Big Honey Hunt, appeared in 1962. Since then, more than 370 Berenstain Bears books have been published, and more than 300 million copies have been sold. What began as an idea sparked by their young sons' love of reading has become over the years arguably the best-selling children's book series ever.
Since their inception, the Berenstain Bears stories have expanded to include picture books, beginning readers, and chapter books--even a hit TV show on PBS. Writing and illustrating the books has become a Berenstain family affair. Mike joined with his parents as a creative team in the late 1980s. The Bear family has expanded over the years as well. Sister Bear arrived in 1974, and baby Honey joined the family in 2000.
Though Stan died in 2005 and Jan in 2012, Mike continues to create the delightful Berenstain Bear adventures from his studio in Pennsylvania.
Mike Berenstain lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where he continues to write and illustrate wonderful new adventures for Mama, Papa, Brother, Sister, and Honey Bear.
Stan y Jan Berenstain lanzaron los primeros libros sobre los Osos Berenstain en 1962. Mike Berenstain creció viendo cómo sus padres trabajaban en equipo para escribir sobre estos encantadores osos y dibujarlos. Finalmente, comenzó a dibujarlos y escribirlos él también. Aunque Stan murió en el año 2005 y Jan en 2012, Mike ha continuado creando las encantadoras aventuras de esta familia de osos desde el hogar y estudio familiar de Pennsylvania, que se halla en una zona con un gran parecido al asoleado camino de tierra que penetra en lo más profundo de Bear Country.
