Product Description

Best known for the ever popular Mike Mulligan and the Caldecott Medal winner The Little House, Virginia Lee Burton wrote and illustrated stories that have been entertaining children, parents, and grandparents for more than sixty years. Many of her books- with themes that honor a simple way of life and celebrate heroes who endure through determination and by adapting to change-have become classic American tales. With an introduction by Barbara Elleman, author of Virginal Lee Burton: A life in Art, this handsome collection commemorates four of Burton's most popular stories, each featured complete and unabridged. Their appeal today, as strong as when the books were first published, is a tribute to one of America's most innovative illustrators, designers, and writers of stories for children.

Author Bio

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.

    I bought this book as part of our homeschooling curriculum. I hadn't ever heard of it before, so I really didn't know what to expect. My daughter loves it. She's only 2 years old, but even she knows how valuable it is. The story of Mike Mulligan and the story of Katy are her favorites. I really think this book is a timeless classic. More people should be buying it and reading it to their children!
