  • 5 stars across 16 books
    Charlotte Zolotow--author, editor, publisher, and educator--has one of the most distinguished reputations in the field of children's literature. She has written more than seventy books, many of which are picture-book classics, such as Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present and William's Doll. She lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

    William Pene du Bois, as both artist and writer, charmed generations of readers with his distinct combination of inventiveness and elegant simplicity. Two of his most popular books are The Twenty One Balloons, winner of the 1948 Newbery Medal, and Lion, a Caldecott Honor Book in 1957. With handsome, delicate artwork, William Pene du Bois tailored his unmistakable style to suit Charlotte Zolotow's groundbreaking and tender story of a boy who wants a doll.
