Jeff Brown attended Professional Children's School in New York, United States.
Brown had a busy and full career before turning to children's fiction. As a child growing up in New York, he went into show business, providing children's voices for radio programs and then acting in Broadway shows as a teenager. After leaving school, he went to Los Angeles, where he worked as an assistant to Samuel Goldwyn, Jr., and became an independent producer and later a story consultant at a subsidiary of Paramount Studios. Soon he was also writing, returning to New York to become a staff writer for several prominent magazines. This, in turn, led to a career in magazine editing, and then to book editing, with Brown becoming a senior editor at Warner Books before he retired from that position in 1980.
Jeff Brown created the character of Flat Stanley when his son joked that he thought the bulletin board over his bed would fall on him and flatten him in his sleep. The joke was so funny, Mr. Brown decided to write a story about what would happen if a bulletin board actually did flatten a sleeping boy, and Flat Stanley was born. Kids and teachers around the world immediately embraced Jeff Brown’s children’s books and took to fun classroom activities based on the stories, like the Flat Stanley Project. “Flat Stanley” was published in 1964 with illustrations by Tomi Ungerer. After writing "Flat Stanley," Mr. Brown went on to "Stanley and the Magic Lamp" in 1983, "Stanley in Space" in 1990, "Stanley's Christmas Adventure" in 1993, "Invisible Stanley" in 1995 and finally "Stanley, Flat Again!" in 2003.
