This is an important book about Margaret Wise Brown. It's so well done, hitting just the right notes, distilling the meaning of her life and her writing so that both children and adults can understand, simply, the purpose of her life and the impact of her stories. Along the way we learn about the infamous Anne Carroll Moore, who ruled the Children's Room at the NY Public Library. It was Ms. Moore who rejected Ms. Brown's books and stamped them "Not recommended for purchase by expert." Despite that censor, Margaret Wise Brown's many books (over 100) have lived and thrived on through the last six decades providing joy and comfort and sparking the imagination of millions of readers. That is important. — Susan (RBB Staff)
