To our readers: The books we publish are our contribution to an emerging world based on cooperation rather than on competition, on affirmation of the human spirit rather than on self-doubt, and on the certainty that all humanity is connected. Our goal is to touch as many lives as possible with a message of hope for a better world.--Hal and Linda Kramer, PublishersAbout the Author:
Frances Hodgson Burnett was born in Manchester, England, in 1849. Her father, Edwin Hodgson, dies when Frances was three years old. For several years afterward, Frances's Mother, Eliza Boond Hodgson, supported herself and her five children by running the family's household furnishings business. In 1865, Mrs. Hodgson brought her family to the United States to join a relative in Tennessee. Frances spent many happy hours reading, writing, and observing nature in the woods of Tennessee. At the age of eighteen, Frances began sending short stories to magazine publishers, and in a short time was a successful author. She married Dr. Swan Burnett in 1873. During her long career, Frances wrote a great number of varied works, but she is best remembered for her much-loved children's books, which include The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, and Little Lord Fauntleroy. Frances died in 1924 in Plandome, Long Island.
Judith Ann Griffith grew up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where she spent much of her childhood drawing and exploring the countryside around her home. As a child, she gained from nature a sense of security, wonder, and belonging that would later serve to inspire her work. After graduating from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, she moved to the Midwest, where she worked as an illustrator and experimented with pottery, weaving, and gardening. For the past eleven years she has lived with her beloved husband, Jim, in the woods of Arkansas, spending much of her time drawing by a window which overlooks a river valley and miles of forest.
