About the Author:

Watty Piper's classic The Little Engine That Could has delighted and encouraged children for more than seventy years.

Holling Clancy Holling (1900 1973) graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1923. He then worked in a taxidermy department of the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and spent time working in anthropology under Dr. Ralph Linton. During this period, he married Lucille Webster and within a year of their marriage accepted a position as art instructor on the first University World Cruise, sponsored by New York University. For many years, he dedicated much of his time and interest to making books for children. Much of the material he used was known to him first hand, and his wife, Lucille, worked with him on many of the illustrations. He is best known for his book "Paddle-to-the-Sea" which was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1942 and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1962.
