Author Info
Fred Marcellino
Author, illustrator, and book designer Fred Marcellino is a classically trained painter who was educated at the Cooper Union Art School, Yale University, and the Academy Belle Arti in Venice, Italy. He began his career as book jacket illustrator, providing artwork for books by such authors as Margaret Atwood, Milan Kundera, Judith Rossner, and Tom Wolfe. Marcellino turned to illustrating children's books in the late 1980s; his 1990 paintings for PUSS IN BOOTS won a Caldecott Honor Award. He provided both the text and artwork for his 1999 picture book I, CROCODILE. Fred Marcellino died of colon cancer on July 12, 2001.
Elwyn Brooks White was one of the original writers for "The New Yorker" magazine. Over the course of several years he contributed satirical sketches, poems, essays, and editorials. He wrote his first book for children, STUART LITTLE, after he dreamed of a tiny boy who acted like a mouse. His 1952 classic, CHARLOTTE'S WEB, is actually set on the Maine farm where White and his wife lived. After a sabbatical of 18 years, he published his third and final novel for children, THE TRUMPET OF THE SWAN. E. B. White won many awards for his writing, including the 1963 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the 1970 Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, and the 1971 National Medal for Literature. He also received the National Institute of Arts and Letters' Gold Medal for Essays and Criticism and was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
Garth Williams illustrated several classic books for children including STUART LITTLE and CHARLOTTE'S WEB, both written by E. B. White, as well as all the books in Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series. Williams and his family moved around a lot during his childhood, giving him the opportunity to live not only in the United States, but also Canada and England. Upon reaching adulthood and returning to the United States, Williams tried to get a job illustrating for "The New Yorker" magazine, but his artistic style was considered too "European." However, it was "New Yorker" contributor E. B. White himself who suggested that Williams illustrate STUART LITTLE. In addition to illustrating the works of other authors, Williams also wrote and illustrated his own books, such as THE RABBITS' WEDDING.
