Meet the Author

Russell Hoban was the author of A Bargain for Frances, A Baby Sister for Frances, Best Friends for Frances, A Birthday for Frances, and Bread and Jam for Frances, all illustrated by Lillian Hoban. He also wrote Bedtime for Frances, illustrated by Garth Williams.

Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."

    more from this reviewer

    This was my eldest daughters favorite book

    We read this book before bed every night for probably a year. It is perfect for a precocious 3 year old, and will transition well into kindergarten and beyond. I purchased it for my best girlfriend and her daughter, who is 2 1/2, very verbal, and loves books.

    Favorite childhood story

    I remember growing up, my mom would read this book to me. I think I also had the book on record. It was fantastic. I've actually added it to my Christmas wish list so that I can have a copy of it for myself.
