"Brown was a prolific writer and used several pseudonyms in addition to her own name, signing books as Golden MacDonald, Timothy Hay and Juniper Sage The passionate energy with which she wrote and the casual way she selected and used pseudonyms reflect her personality as others knew it. The number of her books, as well as their appeal, contributed to her enormous sales; by the end of 1946 [the year in which this title was published] some 835,000 copies of her books had been sold Ironically, Brown’s productivity may have delayed formal recognition of her talent" (ANB). "Although Weisgard illustrated stories for numerous authors, he was known especially for his association with Margaret Wise Brown Weisgard was a runner-up for the Caldecott Medal in 1946 for his illustrations to Little Lost Lamb and won the award in 1947 for The Little Island; Brown wrote both books under the pseudonym Golden MacDonald" (Britannica Online).
