9780060286408: Charlotte and The White Horse

Continuing a two-year program to bring back twenty-two Maurice Sendak treasures long out of print, our second season of publication highlights one of the most successful author-illustrator pairings of all time. A pioneer of great children's literature, Ruth Krausspublished more than thirty books for children during a career that spanned forty years. Krauss and Sendak collaborated on eight books, and we are delighted to reintroduce four of these gems in brand-new editions, together with a favorite Maurice Sendak picture book.

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).



In addition to Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's books include Kenny's Window, Very Far Away, The Sign on Rosie's Door, Nutshell Library (consisting of Chicken Soup with Rice, Alligators All Around, One Was Johnny, and Pierre), Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy, and Bumble-Ardy.

He received the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are; the 1970 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration; the 1983 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, given by the American Library Association in recognition of his entire body of work; and a 1996 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution to the arts in America. In 2003, he received the first Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an international prize for children's literature established by the Swedish government.

Book Description HarperCollins. 1 Cloth(s), 1983. hard. Book Condition: New. This is a tiny, quiet, music box of a book, originally published in 1955. Ruth Krauss's lyrical story of a young girl and her new colt is as meditative and timeless as a haiku, told as a child experiences things, with a few grace notes from the adult world. Maurice Sendak's watercolors, from the early part of his career, have a soft-edged, dreamlike quality perfectly suited to the story, and occasionally reminiscent of Maurice Chagall's folktale images. Though meant to be read aloud to children up to 6, the book will resonate with gentle spirits of all ages."A little book of unusual beauty."—Horn Book"Another book, sweet and small, with ever the light touch that is Ruth Krauss's and Maurice Sendak's. Its ageless appeal is well defined."—Kirkus Reviews 24. Bookseller Inventory # 71666
