Author Margery Williams was born in London, England on July 22, 1881. She moved to the United States when she was nine-years-old and alternated between living in the United States and England for the rest of her life. She is best known for her thirty children's books, but she also wrote novels for adults and young adults. Her most popular works include The Velveteen Rabbit, Poor Cecco: The Wonderful Story of a Wonderful Wooden Dog Who Was the Jolliest Toy in the House Until He Went Out to Explore the World, and The Little Wooden Doll. Her young adult book, Winterbound, was a runner-up for the 1937 Newbery Medal and was retroactively given the Newbery Honor award when it was established in 1971. She died on September 4, 1944 at the age of 63.
