Kraus was born on June 21, 1925, in Milwaukee Wisconsin. When he was a boy, he decided he wanted to become a cartoonist and sold his first work to a barbershop when he was 10. By the time he was a teenager he was selling to magazines like Esquire and Saturday Evening Post. He studied at the Art Student¿s League in New York. A year later, he joined the staff of The New Yorker, where he worked for 20 years and created more than 40 covers and many hundreds of cartoons. While at The New Yorker, he also wrote and illustrated more than two dozen children¿s books. He left The New Yorker in 1966 and founded Windmill Books, which published not only his own titles but also the works of such illustrators and authors as Jacob Lawrence, Whitney Darrow Jr., Edward Koren, Norman Rockwell, Mickey Spillane, William Steig, and Charles Addams. Within a year, the house had won a prestigious Caldecott Medal and over the years, published more than 200 titles on three continents. In 1983 he began a syndicated Sunday comic feature, called Zap! The Video Chap, that was aimed at children addicted to the new phenomenon of video games. H. Robert Kraus died Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2001 at a nursing home in Kent, Connecticut at the age of 76.
