Welcome to the Official site of Author Mike Thaler
A children’s book editor saw one of his cartoon stories in a national magazine and encouraged Mike to try writing for children. His first attempt met with success, and “The Magic Boy” was published in 1961, followed by “Penny Pencil.” Both were illustrated by Mike.
Mike has produced over 200 published books for children and is known as “America’s Riddle King.” He has also been called “The Court Jester of Children’s Literature.”
Mike has produced many well known and loved characters in children’s literature. He was the creator of “The Letterman” for the PBS Electric Company series.
His Christian series, “Tales from the Back Pew” (10 book set/Zondervan), was released in January 2009.
