Author Info
Richard Egielski
Richard Egielski attended the High School of Art and Design and later studied at both the Pratt Institute and Parsons. He was encouraged to enter the field of children's book illustration by author/illustrator Maurice Sendak, one of his instructors at Parsons. He is well known for his illustrations for books by Arthur Yorinks, one of which--HEY AL--won the Caldecott Medal in 1987. Egielski has also illustrated the works of such authors as Pam Conrad.
Margaret Wise Brown, best known for GOODNIGHT MOON, the enduring classic given to every new parent, wrote over 100 books for children and was a pioneer in the areas of children's literature and education. Though many of her books featured bunnies and other fluffy creatures, she belonged to the Buckram Beagles, a Long Island hunting club. Brown won the Caldecott Medal in 1947 for THE LITTLE ISLAND. She died tragically young, at the age of 42 of an embolism following a routine operation.
Praise
"Margaret Wise Brown's story...is observant, imaginative and more than a bit quaint....[illustrator Richard Egielski] has brought a gentle ingenuity to the project that suits the story beautifully."
