"I was born in Hannibal, Missouri, where we lived at the top of Hill Street in an old house that creaked with the adventures of five children and our parents. We later moved to Pontiac, Illinois, and filled a house with books, noise, crackpot ideas, and ill-tempered cats.

"I first heard stories at the family dinner table, but I was never quite clear about which were fact and which were fiction. I found more stories in the family library, some made vivid with illustration: N. C. Wyeth's robust" Boy's King Arthur", Mead Schaeffer's painterly "Three Musketeers, " Maxfield Parrish's "Arabian Nights, " Robert Lawson's "Rabbit Hill", and the curious drawings by Maud and Miska Petersham for "The Rootabaga Stories.
