Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Ipcar has left behind a wonderful and extensive legacy...She produced many enduring children’s books of course, such as Hardcrabble Harvest, The Cat at Night, and Wild and Tame Animals…The disarming fact that Ipcar worked up until her last day calls to mind another hard worker, Big Betty, the one horse of Ipcar’s classic picture book, One Horse Farm…a perfect example of Ipcar’s timeless illustrations, their exquisite palette, quietly expressive figures and sublime backdrops offering an absorbing visual narrative…When I think of Dahlov Ipcar’s legacy many things come to mind, but her concern for personal character and integrity, so deftly and powerfully expressed, are something for which I will always carry a grateful memory."
- from A Farewell to Dahlov Ipcar, Publishers Weekly, Feb. 2017

Meet the Author

Born in Vermont in 1917, Dahlov Zorach was raised in New York City by her parents, the famed sculptor William Zorach and artist Marguerite Zorach. The family spent summers at their 1820s farmhouse in Georgetown, Maine, where she met Adolph Ipcar. She and Adolph married in 1936 and the following year, they moved permanently to Maine, where she has farmed, painted, and worked on writing and illustrating books ever since. Today, Ipcar’s intricate, vibrant, and fanciful artwork is known worldwide, and her paintings are in the permanent collections of numerous renowned museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her unique and distinctly modern style has helped change the role of artwork in children’s literature. Her stories are often about the pleasures of a simple life and the power of the imagination. In her long and illustrious career, Ipcar has written more than 30 children’s books, including “The Little Fisherman,” (written by Margaret Wise Brown,) “The Cat at Night,” “My Wonderful Christmas Tree,” and “One Horse Farm,” “The Calico Jungle,” and three board books including "Dahlov Ipcar’s Maine Alphabet." Her work has earned her the prestigious Kerlan Award in Children’s Literature in 1998; the Katahdin Award (a lifetime achievement award given by the Maine Library Association) in 2001; and the New England Independent Booksellers Association President’s Award in 2010. In 2012, the artist was awarded the Maine in America Award from the Farnsworth Museum of Art for her outstanding contribution to Maine’s role in American art.
