Hugh Lofting was born just outside of London in 1886. While serving in the army during World War I, he did not want to write home to his children about the atrocities of the war. Instead he wrote fanciful letters that became the basis for the zany adventures of John Dolittle. Dr. Arthur Pober has spent more than 20 years in the fields of early childhood and gifted education. He is currently the US representative to the European Institute for the Media and European Advertising Standards Alliance. Scott McKowen has created award-winning posters and graphics for theatre companies across Canada and the United States, including on Broadway. His work has been exhibited in art galleries and he has curated an exhibition of theatre posters from around the world.
