The Important Thing about Margaret Wise Brown


“Barnett’s confiding tone draws readers in . . . then makes the case for Brown’s work.” –Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

In 42 inspired pages, this biography by award-winning writer Mac Barnett vividly depicts one of the greatest children’s book creators who ever lived: Margaret Wise Brown, the author of Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and The Little Fur Family.  

The way this text plays with form and echoes the language of some of Margaret’s classics (like The Important Book) is truly awe-inspiring. Reviewers and librarians are going to feast on the delights of this book. It’s like nothing else out there and it’s a lively read-aloud as well.

Illustrated with sumptuous art by rising star Sarah Jacoby, this is an essential book for children’s book lovers of every age.
