This latest addition to the Book of Junior Authors and Illustrators, first published in 1934 and last revised in 2000, offers solid and appealing information for students, librarians, and educators. Close to 200 authors and illustrators are profiled in this update. Although the focus of the text is on new contributors, 18 profiles from previous editions have been brought up-to-date, including those for Barbara Cooney, Virginia Hamilton, and William Steig.
Each entry begins with a statement in the author's or artist's own words. This is followed by an editorial piece that presents information about the individual's life and work that was not mentioned in the autobiography. Each entry concludes with a bibliography of selected works of the individual. Also, new to this edition, Web site addresses for some authors have been included.
The book offers an attractive format that features portraits and autographs of each person as well as cover-art illustrations. The collection concludes with a listing of awards and honors cited within the volume and a comprehensive index to all of the volumes of the series. School and public libraries would be well served by this informative and easy-to-read text. Maren Ostergard
