Meet the Author

Clare Turlay Newberry (1903-1970) was born in Eugene, Oregon. She studied art at the University of Oregon, School of the Portland Art Museum, the California School of Fine Arts, and La Grand Chaumière in Paris, France. She received the Caldecott Honor for four of her books: T-Bone, The Baby Sitter (1951); Marshmallow (1943); April's Kittens (1941); and Barkis (1939).

In Ms. Newberry's own words, "Every word of marshmallow is true, even to the drawing of them wrapped in each other's arms. I know people find this hard to believe, but the bunny was so little and was so convinced that Oliver was his mother, what could Oliver do but be his mother the best way he could?"

    This favorite book from my childhood (I was born in 1940) enchan

    This favorite book from my childhood (I was born in 1940) enchanted me with its unforgettable illustrations. I thought it was particularly wonderful because my grandfather's name was Oliver. In later years I adopted a shelter cat of about 3 years, a very handsome peach and white gentleman; I named him Oliver. My grandchildren wondered if I named him after my grandfather so I explained that he was named after Marshmallow's cat--and of course I had to buy this beautiful book and share the story. My own Oliver feline lived to the age of 17, and I still miss him.

    Highly Recommend for adults and children

    This book is both beautifully written and illustrated. It is my favorite baby gift but I also have a copy for myself.
    I always look for it in the larger, hardcover format which I feel does better justice to the illustrations.
    It is a great book to read to children and then later then can read for themselves.
    You do not need to love cats or rabbits or have children to enjoy this book.
    Take a look, you will love it.

    Wonderful and classic

    I gave this book to a 3 year old and he demanded immediate reading. There were other children present from 3 through 7 and all loved it! The message of this delightful read was appropriate for each of the ages. It is now being enjoyed every evening before bed. This book is destined to become a classic at our house!

    Sweet story, lovely illustrations.

    Clare Newberry's adoration for her subjects shines through her illustrations. They're simple but vibrant and engaging. The story centers on Oliver the cat--how he likes routine and enjoys the quiet of his indoor life, and how he reacts to Marshmallow, a baby rabbit who comes to live with him. I plan to buy this book as a gift for the young children in my life.
