Best known for the ever popular Mike Mulligan and the Caldecott Medal winner The Little House, Virginia Lee Burton wrote and illustrated stories that have been entertaining children, parents, and grandparents for more than sixty years. Many of her books--with themes that honor a simple way of life and celebrate heroes who endure through determination and by adapting to change--have become classic American tales.
With an introduction by Barbara Elleman, author of Virginia Lee Burton: A Life in Art, this handsome collection commemorates four of Burton's most popular stories, each featured complete and unabridged. Their appeal today, as strong as when the books were first published, is a tribute to one of America's most innovative illustrators, designers, and writers of stories for children.ISBN: 0-618-25627-X
