André François was born November 9, 1915, in Timisoara, Rumania. His original surname was Farkas, but he took the name Francois when he became a French citizen in the mid-1930s. He is renowned for his work in a variety of different art fields, from the graphic arts and advertising to set and costume design to cartoons. His artictic ability served him well when he turned his hand to the realm of children's books. His first book illustrations published in the United States were those for Little Boy Brownin 1949. Six years later, with Crocodile Tears, he became creator of the story as well as of the illustrations. That book became a New York TimesChoice of Best Illustrated Children's Books of the Year. He won that same award three other times. Biographical Source: Something About the Author, Vol. 25, p. 116
