Doris Orgel was born in 1929 in Vienna, Austria. To escape the rise of the Nazi party in Austria, her family fled to Yugoslavia and finally to New York. She attended Radcliffe College from 1946 to 1948 and graduated cum laude in 1950 from Barnard College. Prior to 1955, Ms. Orgel worked in magazine and book publishing. Since that time she has written and translated several fairy and folk tales, as well as served as a translator for other authors. Her first original book, Sarah’s Room (1963) was published under the pseudonym Doris Adelberg. It was also republished in England and in Switzerland in German. In 1960, Ms. Orgel received the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for her translation of Willhelm Hauff's Dwarf Long-Nose (1960). She also worked as a children’s book reviewer for "The New York Times".From Publishers Weekly:
"On Sarah's wall, green trees grow tall, / and morning glories bloom," begins this beguiling verse about the rivalry--and ultimate reconciliation--between two sisters, delicately illustrated and presented in an enticing small-sized edition. Ages 4-8.
