Meet the Author
Woody Guthrie (1912-1967) wrote more than a thousand folk songs, including many for children. Woody loved babies and he loved trains. His rail journeys across the country inspired some of his most famous songs, including "This Train is Bound for Glory" and "This Land is Your Land." His song "New Baby Train" was recently recorded for the first time by Kim Wilson on the CD, Daddy O Daddy.
Marla Frazee has created many acclaimed picture books, including the lullaby Hush, Little Baby, a Folk Song with Pictures. As a longtime fan of Woody Guthrie and American roots music, Frazee approached this project with a desire to capture Woody's spirit, playfulness, and era. She visited train museums, studied photographs of the Dust Bowl, and listened to a lot of Woody's music while working on this book. She works in a small cabin in the backyard of the house she shares with her husband and three sons in Pasadena, California.
