Biographical Sketch

Aaron Judah was born October 19, 1923, in Bombay, India. His main career was physiotherapy and writing. His adult novels are characterized by sensitivity and humor, while his writings for children illustrate a variety or morals in a simple and direct manner. His animal characters frequently represent virtues or vices, such as the wily fox, selfish camel, or well-educated owl. Judah deplored what he sees as a decline in the level of writing, and blames television for playing a major part in what today would be called the dumbing-down of literature.
