About the Author

KATE DICAMILLO est l'auteure de plusieurs romans à succès pour les jeunes, dont La quête de Despereaux et Winn-Dixie, respectivement récipiendaires de la médaille Newbery et d'un honneur Newbery. Ces deux histoires touchantes ont connu un grand succès auprès des jeunes avant d'être portées au grand écran. Elle s'est par ailleurs alliée à l'illustrateur de renom Chris Van Dusen pour offrir aux lecteurs débutants une collection de petits romans irrésistibles mettant en vedette Mercy Watson, un adorable cochon. Son roman dernier roman Les aventures de Flora et Ulysse a remporté la médaille Newbery en 2014. Kate habite Minneapolis, aux États-Unis.KATE DICAMILLO is the author of many beloved books for young readers, including The Tale of Despereaux (La quête de Despereaux), which received a Newbery Medal; Because of Winn-Dixie (Winn-Dixie), which received a Newbery Honor; The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane (L'odyssée miraculeuse d'Édouard Toulaine), winner of a Boston Globe -- Horn Book Award; The Magician's Elephant (L'éléphant du magicien) and the best-selling Mercy Watson series. Kate DiCamillo lives in Minneapolis.

E. B. White, the author of such beloved classics as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, was born in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and, five or six years later, joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. He died on October 1, 1985, and was survived by his son and three grandchildren.

Mr. White's essays have appeared in Harper's magazine, and some of his other books are: One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E. B. White, Essays of E. B. White, and Poems and Sketches of E. B. White. He won countless awards, including the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which commended him for making a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.

During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to be sent to his fans, he answered, No, they are imaginary tales . . . But real life is only one kind of life--there is also the life of the imagination.

Garth Williams (1912-96) illustrated all seven of the Chester Cricket books and many other works, including Stuart Little and Charlotte's Web.
