About the Author

Stan and Jan Berenstain, often called The Berenstains, were American writers and illustrators best known for creating the children's book series The Berenstain Bears. They met in 1941 while attending the Philadelphia Museum School of Industrial Arts. Stan was drafted into the Army during World War II and served from 1943 to 1946. Blind in one eye, he was given limited service, and spent most of his army career as a medical illustrator at an army hospital in Indiana. During the war, Jan worked as a draftsman for the Army Corps of Engineers and as an aircraft riveter building the US Navy's PBY flying boat. During his service, Stan began drawing cartoons and publishing them in magazines.

Stan and Jan were married right after the war and began careers as a magazine cartoonist team. They published cartoons focusing on humor about children and families in The Saturday Evening Post, Colliers Magazine, McCall's, Good Housekeeping and many more. Many of these cartoons were also published as book collections.

The start of their own family came with the birth of son, Leo, in 1948, followed by Mike in 1951. Since both sons were big Dr. Seuss fans, Stan and Jan decided to try their hands at creating a children's book themselves. Their efforts became The Big Honey Hunt, which featured Papa, Mama and, at that time, Small Bear. More than two hundred Berenstain Bears books have followed in the fifty-three years since, and total sales of the series have topped 260 million copies. Mike Berenstain is an American writer and illustrator of children's books. The son of Stan and Jan Berenstain, Mike continued the Berenstain Bears with his mother following Stan's death in 2005, and took over creation of the series after Jan's death in 2012. His older brother Leo Berenstain is also involved in management of the franchise. Jennifer Vuletic is an Australian actress, singer and NIDA graduate from the class of 1984. She has enjoyed a varied career travelling all over Australia and the world, and has toured internationally with the hit show Mamma Mia!, playing the role of Tanya. She also performed in Menopause The Musical, The Women of Troy and Jerry Springer: The Opera. She has recorded audiobooks for over 24 years and has won numerous awards for her narrations, including the Trish Trinick Award for The God of Small Things.
