9780060297251: Pleasant Fieldmouse

Here is Pleasant Fieldmouse, as enchanting a small creature as one might hope to meet. And here, too, are his friends, Mrs. Worry-Wind Hedgehog, Haunted Beaver, Graybeard Tortoise, and many, many others.

Their happy adventures in the forest, whether preparing for a picnic that never takes place, growing a very special and beautiful talking rose, or performing brave and heroic deeds of courage, will enchant the youngest listener.

And who could ask for more than to have these lovable forest folk portrayed by Maurice Sendak, whose pictures are known and loved by thousands of children and adults.

About the Author:

Jan Wahl believed that this, his first book for children, surely had its roots in the woods and fields of the Ohio farm country, where he was raised. Mr. Wahl was graduated from Cornell University and the University of Michigan, and attended the University of Copenhagen on a Fulbright Scholarship.



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.
