Eight years later, Berkeley began producing the comic strip, Opus, a Sunday-only strip featuring Opus the Penguin. In addition to his cartoon work, he has also produced seven children's books, two of which, A Wish for Wings That Work and Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big, were made into animated films. Berkeley's writing has also been featured in numerous publications, including Life, Boating, and Travel and Leisure. Berkeley lives with his family in Southern California.
