User Review  - Paul - Goodreads

A childhood favorite I stumbled across again recently. I am not a huge fan of children's books, I am learning from my forced-reading of some kid-lit classics, but this was enjoyable enough. Read full review

About the author (2000)

Offit is a novelist, teacher and curator of the George Polk Journalism Awards.

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
