About the Author:

Ruth Krauss (1901-1993) is the author of over thirty books for children, including the classics The Carrot Seed, illustrated by her husband, Crockett Johnson, and A Hole Is to Dig, illustrated by Maurice Sendak. "Ruth Krauss's intuitive ability as a writer to capture the free-spirited thought processes and laughter of young children ensures her books' widespread acceptance and timeless appeal." So concludes her entry in children's Books and Their Creators (1995).



Helen Oxenbury is one of the world's most popular and acclaimed children's book illustrators. She has won England's Kate Greenaway Medal as well as many other awards. Her three series of board books--Heads, Bodies, and Legs; First Picture Books; and Pippo--have sold several million copies and are regarded as classics that revolutionized the board-book genre. Her recent books include It's My Birthday, So Much, and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

About the Author:

Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer’s Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humor and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted a child’s inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children’s literature, including Maurice Sendak and her husband, Crockett Johnson.
