Author Info
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her first book, LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS, at the age of 65. This title began the nine-book "Little House" series, which was a combination of autobiography, storytelling, and American history. More than just the story of one person's life, the series is an account of the settling of the American frontier. All the books in the series were edited by Wilder's only child, a daughter named Rose Wilder Lane. In 1954, as a testament to Laura Ingalls Wilder's contribution to the world of children's literature, the American Library Association created the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to recognize creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature. Naturally, she was the first to be honored with this award. Her legions of fans still make pilgrimages to the settings of her books and her former homes, all of which are preserved or memorialized in her honor.
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.
