Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ellen Welty
This is a wonderful compilation of the "Little Golden Book" stories and poems written by the incomparable Margaret Wise Brown and illustrated by several of the many artists who worked with "Little Golden Books" authors at the time. "Little Golden Books" launched the careers of many illustrators represented in this collection such as Garth Williams, Leonard Weisgard, and the Provensons. The stories in the volume include favorites such as "Seven Little Postmen" and "The Train to Timbuctoo" as well as selections from others. The stories are all written for the young reader or pre-reader whose parent or other adult reads aloud to him or her. They have child-friendly adventures and comforting endings. Had she lived, Margaret Wise Brown's contribution to children's literature of the twentieth century could well have exceeded several hundred books. Despite her early death, her output is remarkable and her influence immeasurable. This volume is a delightful tribute to her unrivaled ability to create characters and stories that children love.
