About the Authors

Margaret Wise Brown

What child hasn t been lulled to sleep -- or at least comforted -- by the gentle rhymes of Margaret Wise Brown s classic Goodnight Moon? Brown, a former teacher, believed that very young children could be fascinated in the simple pleasures of the world around them, and created some of the most enduring and beloved children s books of all time.

Janette Sebring Lowrey

Janette Sebring Lowrey lived in Texas and wrote young adult novels for Harper in the 1940s and 1950s, as well as a few other Little Golden Books. Gustaf Tenggren, who immigrated to the U.S. from Sweden in 1920, created other famous Little Golden Book characters such as the Saggy Baggy Elephant and Tawny Scrawny Lion. Before coming to Golden Books, he worked for the Disney studio, providing concept artwork for various characters and scenes in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Pinocchio. He died in 1970.
