(Beacon 1992/Harper Perennial 1999)
The authoritative biography of the author of Goodnight Moon.
Read about one of the many instances of assiduous sleuthing that went into the making of this pioneering book here.
“An absorbing biography.” – New York Times Book Review
“More than a finely etched, honest portrait of an artist, Margaret Wise Brown is an exciting, fast-paced glimpse into the very beginnings of the golden age of children’s book publishing in America. Leonard Marcus has restored Brown to her rightful place as both pioneer and poet.” – Maurice Sendak
