MoonBear is a creative content kingdom we created so we could tell stories that kids big and small would enjoy. You see, Mario and I are grownups that still have our kid voices yelling in our head—ALL THE TIME.
We grew up on Sesame Street, Dr. Seuss and the old Bugs Bunny Cartoons. As kids these stories were fun on one level, but as adults we discovered a new level of humor we didn't catch before. This is what a MoonBear book strives to offer!
We like shooting for the moon, but without the clunky gear and spaceship launch. We figure if the trip is wacky and fun for us, maybe it’ll be for you too, no matter what your age.
When Rosemary was a little kid, she had a career making up goofy songs and performing loud bathtub concerts with her younger sister in shower caps. It all came to an end one day when the shower curtain and pole collapsed. She switched to writing and editing magazines, blogs then working behind the scenes at NBC and Telemundo. She also served as a writer and story development consultant for indie animation studio Sprite Entertainment. And if no one’s around, she’ll still do a bathtub concert—with no shower cap.
As a boy, Mario made his own superhero “figures” by drawing them on paper and punching little holes around them to set them free from the page. Years later this amazing superpower would come in handy as an animator where he got to work on films like “The Lion King,” “Pocahantas,” “Tarzan” and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action.” He now shares his superpower tricks to students in the Animation Department of The School of Visual Arts.
