Children’s book author and illustrator is a local treasure

Shrewsbury – Thanks to a lot of talent, and some fortunate encounters, Ralph Masiello became a successful author and illustrator of children’s and how-to-draw books. He has given back to local students by creating a mural at the Boylston Elementary School, where he was a student. Masiello also recently completed a mural – involving students – at the Calvin Coolidge Elementary School in Shrewsbury.
