About the author (1978)

Helen Stone (1904 - 1978) attended the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts and the Art Students League, and later studied in Paris. After spending time teaching and doing some designing and commercial art, she began illustrating books, and in 1944 she illustrated her first book for children. During the next two decades she illustrated a number of books for children, written by a variety of authors. She believed in giving full scope to design and color, and in enlivening her illustrations with a sense of humor and beauty. She usually worked in three colors and black, but also used separations. She received two Caldecott Honor Book citations, for All Around the Town (1948) and The Most Wonderful Doll in the World (1950).
