E. Y. Harburg (lyricist, 1896-1981) and Harold Arlen (composer, 1905-1986) teamed up in 1939 for the MGM classic movie The Wizard of Oz and created some of the most popular songs ever written, including the Academy Award -- winning "Over the Rainbow." Mr. Harburg wrote, extensively for both Hollywood and Broadway, producing hit after hit, including "It`s Only a Paper Moon," "April in Paris," and "Suddenly.- He was twice nominated for induction into the Entertainment Hall of fame, and was elected into the Songwriters' Hall of fame in 1973.



Julia Noonan's many award-winning books for children include Baby Bat's Lullaby by Jacquelyn Mitchard and When the Moon is High by Alice Schertle. Her own books include The Very Best Doll and Hare and Rabbit: Friends Forever. Ms. Noonan has two children and makes her home in Stony Brook, New York.

From Publishers Weekly:

Two new titles recast well-known numbers. Straight from The Wizard of Oz, Over the Rainbow by E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen pairs the timeless lyrics with gauzy watercolors by Julia Noonan (illus. of Mary Chapin Carpenter's Dreamland). Noonan imagines the narrator as a girl in denim overalls, dreaming of herself wearing a pink tutu and tiny gold crown doing a pas de deux with a toy kitten. Musical notation included. (June)
