About the Author

Charles Perrault (12 January 1628 – 16 May 1703) was a French author considered the founder of the modern fairy tale.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are considered by some to be the most well-known tellers of European folk tales, responsible for popularising such classics as "Cinderella", "Rapunzel" and "Snow White".

When he had completed one year at the New York art school, DIK BROWNE quit school to start working at The New York American newspaper, where he made various technical illustrations. He joined the art staff of Newsweek, and then was inducted into the Army, where he spent three years in the Corps of Engineers.

Simultaneously he published his first comic, 'Ginny Jeep', which was distributed among American soldiers. In the 1940s he began an association with Johnstone & Cushing, an ad company specialized in advertising comics. Browne worked on promotional comic art for most of the 1950s, including the design of 'Chiquita Banana', the redesign of the 'Campbell Soup Kids' and a comic for Boy's Life, the official magazine of the Boy Scouts of America.

Browne's contribution was a strip called 'The Tracy Twins', that he drew from 1953 to 1960. But it would take him until 1954 before he got his lucky break: King Features editor Sylvan Beck, who noticed his work in Boy's Life magazine. Beck introduced him to Mort Walker, who was looking for an artist to draw a newspaper comic about the family life of the sister of his famous comic soldier 'Beetle Bailey'. By then, Walker had already picked the artist of the newspaper ad comic 'The Trouble Twins', which turned out to be Browne as well!

'Hi and Lois', written by Walker and drawn by Browne, debuted in October 1954. The strip met with great success and after two years, a Sunday page was added to the daily. Over the years, Browne has been assisted by Jerry Dumas, Bob and Greg Gustafson, as well as Mort Walker's sons Greg and Brian (script) and his own son Chance (art), who finally took over completely after Browne's death in 1989.

In 1973, Browne came up with the viking family comic 'Hagar the Horrible', also for King Features. Both 'Hi and Lois' and 'Hagar' have earned Dik Browne a place among the greatest comic artists of the U.S. 'Hagar' was continued by Browne's other son, Chris Browne.

WILLIAM "BILL" CROZIER WALSH was born in New York City on September 30, 1913. "Bill" Walsh joined the Disney Studio in 1943 as a gag writer for Mickey Mouse. He was also known as an illustrator for Classics Illustrated Comics. He later was the developer of the Mickey Mouse Club television show. He died in Los Angeles on January 27, 1975.
