Author Notes

Margaret Wise Brown was born on May 10, 1910 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York, to Robert Brown, a Vice President at American Manufacturing Company and Maud Brown, a housewife. She attended school in Lausanne, Switzerland for three years, before attending Dana Hall in Wellesley, Massachusetts for two years. In 1928, she began taking classes at Hollis College in Virginia.

In 1935, Brown began working at the Bank Street Cooperative School for student teachers. Two years later, her writing career took off with the publication of "When the Wind Blows." Over the course of fourteen years, Brown wrote over one hundred picture books for children. Some of her best known titles include Goodnight Moon, Big Red Barn and Runaway Bunny.

Margaret Wise Brown died on November 13, 1952 of an embolism following an operation in Nice, France.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Out of print since the mid-1980s, this whimsical collection features short tales and poems from the great Margaret Wise Brown, complemented by lush and richly detailed illustrations by Leonard Weisgard. Though not nearly as groundbreaking or eye-popping as their 1946 collaboration on The Little Island (Doubleday), which snagged the Caldecott medal, these sweet stories of a land in which "there were nothing but bunnies" will work nicely as one-on-one or bedtime reads. The production value is high, with saturated jewel tones and an attractive cover design; this would also make a lovely gift. From Weisgard's collagelike endpapers featuring a colorful array of leaves to Brown's evocative verse ("By the dark gray river in the soft white snow/I caught a little Rabbit and let him go/Bounding deep in the deep soft snow."), this collection certainly stands the test of time.
