About the Author: In the early 1990s Kathryn Lindskoog edited a series of childrens classics, including LITTLE WOMEN, ROBINSON CRUSOE, BLACK BEAUTY, SIR GIBBIE, A LITTLE PRINCESS, and HANS BRINKER OR THE SILVER SKATES. She went on after that with a similar project for adults, completing a clear three-volume edition of Dantes DIVINE COMEDY in contemporary English prose.
Although Lindskoog has published a variety of original books for adults, she has never outgrown her earliest book- love of all -- childrens literature. Her first book, THE LION OF JUDAH IN NEVER-NEVER LAND (written in 1957 and republished in its fourth edition in 1997) was about C. S. Lewiss Narnian Chronicles. Her book about the whole spectrum of childrens literature, titled HOW TO GROW A YOUNG READER, was first published in 1978 and is being released in its third edition in 1999. So her entire career as an author, 1957-1999 is bracketed by her two books about books for children.
Lindskoog is a resident of Orange, California, where she and her husband John enjoyed raising and reading to their own children.
