Meet the Author

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.

    This book is so sweet. First, the illustrations are wonderful. There's so much going on in them. As time passed for the house, it was fun to point out the changes that occurred in the pictures.

    The story almost made my voice quiver at times. Did I feel sympathy for a house? Yes, I did. It also made me wish for simpler times. I'm not sure if children can grasp the warning that all progress isn't good progress, but they can't miss the smog cloud developing over the little house. We can use all the green lessons that our children can get.
