Frans Vischer was born in Holland. His family immigrated to America when he was eleven years old. Speaking no English, his drawings helped him communicate.

When Frans was thirteen his family visited the Disney Studio, where he was encouraged to make his own animated films. With a recommendation from legendary Warner Bros. cartoon director Chuck Jones, Frans was accepted at Cal Arts in Southern California, and thereafter was hired by the Walt Disney Company.

He’s worked on such films as “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” “Cats Don’t Dance,” “The Road To El Dorado,” “The Princess and The Frog,” and “Winnie The Pooh.”

Telling his kids silly bedtime stories inspired Frans to do children’s books.

Frans lives in Glendale, CA with his wife and three kids and a fat cat and a loud dog.
