From Kirkus Reviews:
Marguerite Henry died barely two years ago, after living the life of which most writers dream: She wrote from the time she was young, her parents encouraged her, she published early and often, and her books were honored and loved in her lifetime. Her hobby, she said, was words, but it was also her life and livelihood. Her research skills were honed by working in her local library, doing book repair. Her husband Sidney supported and encouraged her work, and they traveled widely as she carefully researched the horses on Chincoteague and the burros in the Grand Canyon. She worked in great harmony with her usual illustrator, Wesley Dennis, and was writing up until she died. Collins is a bit overwrought in his prose, but Henry comes across as strong and engaging as she must have been in person. Researchers will be delighted to find her Newbery acceptance speech included in its entirety. (b&w photos, bibliography, index) (Biography. 9-12) -- Copyright 1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From School Library Journal:
Grade 5 Up-These biographies are pleasant amalgams of their subjects' personal and professional lives. However, the constant use of "Conan" as the writer's first name is somewhat disconcerting and never explained. Marguerite Henry paints an endearing portrait of the writer from her early childhood until her death. It is difficult to tell if the dialogue and explanations of her feelings are fictionalized as no sources are cited. Her Newbery Award acceptance speech is appended. Full-page black-and-white photos and reproductions appear in both titles; some of them are quite grainy. However, those in Collins's book are often endearing shots of Henry with her animal friends. These titles will provide motivation for would-be writers and will interest fans of these authors.
