Fermin Rocker was born December 22, 1907 in London. He attended the
Municipal School of Arts and Crafts in Berlin, Germany before moving to the
United States. Qualified status of illustrator, commercial lithographer,
animated cartoonist and commercial artist, Rocker published his first book in
1962 - over fifty years into his life. However, between 1962 and 1977 his name
donned over thirty-five works of children's literature. Rocker writes, "I have
an inability to come to terms with art and music that need to be 'explained'
before they can be enjoyed. Children, before they received their cultural
brainwashing at least, seem to share my sentiments in this regard."
