									Jules FeifferJules Feiffer
Beloved children’s book author Jules Feiffer didn’t start out with kid-friendly fare. After first gaining notoriety -- and a Pulitzer Prize -- for his stark, darkly comic political cartoons, he redrew himself as the creator of such charming kids’ tales as I’m Not Bobby! and The House Across the Street.

Feiffer's Big Break

Feiffer got his start as a professional cartoonist by working as an assistant to Will Eisner, the famous father of the classic cartoon The Spirit. Called "one of the most influential comic strips of all time" (Ken Tucker), The Spirit's somber, shadowy figures were an influence on Feiffer's later signature style.

The Catcher in the Rye
by J. D. Salinger
Feiffer recalled to The Hungry Mind Review that he was deeply moved by the scene in The Catcher in the Rye when Holden Caulfield fell so in love with a book that he wanted to call the author in the middle of the night. Said Feiffer, "Everything I've ever done has been in the hope of becoming that author."
