Tony Fucileony Fucile has spent over twenty years designing and animating characters for cartoon feature films. During the first fifteen years, he put pencil to paper to help bring life to characters from The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Iron Giant. And in the last six years, he put mouse to mouse pad for the Oscar-winning Finding Nemo and The Incredibles, for which he was a Supervising Animator. Tony's first picture book for children, Let's Do Nothing!, will be released by Candlewick Press in Spring 2009. He's currently working on a chapter book series by Kate DiCamillo and Alison McGhee about two friends named Bink and Gollie. He's also excited to begin work on Mitchell's License, a picture book by Hallie Durand to be published by Candlewick Press.

Tony was born in San Francisco and currently resides nearby with his wife, Stacey, their two kids, Eli and Elinor, and two Chihuahuas (Pedro and Kahlua).
