A Brief Biography: Frank Riccio (17 February 1958 - 20 July 2014)

Frank joined Peter on the radio on and off since 1998, on both Tell Us A Tale and Too Much Sugar. When not in the studio with Peter, he was parent to two wonderful children, disciple of nature, and an award winning illustrator. His illustrated books for both children and adults range from classics such as Johnny Appleseed and the Fables of Aesop, to Curriculum of Love, a 1997 Parent's Choice and MAPA Best Inspirational Book award winner. His enchanting Spirited Alphabet was included in the Society of Illustrators 40th Annual Exhibition. A Spirited Alphabet, and The Little Soul and the Sun, a children's parable adapted from Conversations of God by Neale Donald Walsch, are both available at a bookstore near you. Frank worked in his home on the edge of a small, spirited wood where inspiration and nature's muses dwell. After being diagnosed with cancer in May of 2014, he tragically died just two months later.

Below are but a few samples of Frank's work. All of these these works can be ordered from Amazon.com, and Barnes & Noble. You can also visit Frank's Workbook and MendolaArt.com to see more of his amazing work.
