Meet the Author

Peggy Parish was born and grew up in Manning, South Carolina. Before moving to New York City, she taught school in the Panhandle country and in coal-mining areas. Her first job in New York City was with the Girl Scouts, and she now teaches the third grade at the Dalton School in Manhattan. Miss Parish is the author of several other books for children, including the popular Let's Be Indians.

Marc Simont was born in 1915 in Paris. His parents were from the Catalonia region of Spain, and his childhood was spent in France, Spain, and the United States. Encouraged by his father, Joseph Simont, an artist and staff illustrator for the magazine L'Illustration, Marc Simont drew from a young age. Though he later attended art school in Paris and New York, he considers his father to have been his greatest teacher.

When he was nineteen, Mr. Simont settled in America permanently, determined to support himself as an artist. His first illustrations for a children's book appeared in 1939. Since then, Mr. Simont has illustrated nearly a hundred books, working with authors as diverse as Margaret Wise Brown and James Thurber. He won a Caldecott Honor in 1950 for illustrating Ruth Krauss's The Happy Day, and in in 1957 he was awarded the Caldecott Medal for his pictures in A Tree is Nice, by Janice May Udry.

Internationally acclaimed for its grace, humor, and beauty, Marc Simont's art is in collections as far afield at the Kijo Picture Book Museum in Japan, but the honor he holds most dear is having been chosen as the 1997 Illustrator of the Year in his native Catalonia. Mr. Simont and his wife have one grown son, two dogs and a cat. They live in West Cornwall, Connecticut. Marc Simont's most recent book is The Stray Dog.

    Another Response to granny's remarks

    I am not sure what Granny was thinking - as most 4 years olds can not read, especially since most 4 year olds are not even in school yet. As a teacher and a parent of a 5 year old, I can tell you that these kinds of books are great books for beginning readers in kindergarten thru 2nd grade. Reading to children is a wonderful, essential part of a child's development. By the way, there are some very advanced 4 year olds that can read these books. Granny needs to lighten up!!

    A response

    I just wanted to let you know, in response to your comment - there are 'My First I can Read' books, which are better for 4 year olds.

    level 1 'I can read' books

    all of the 'I can read' level 1 books I sent to my grandchildren were not what I expected. No 4 year old can read these books themselves...They are for adults to read to them. I ordered 7 of these books which were delivered and spent alot of money for them so my grandkids could read them themselves so I am greatly disappointed in the false advertising of these books.
