About the Author

Du Bose Heyward (1885-1940) was a prolific southern writer perhaps best known for his critically acclaimed adult novel Porgy, which inspired Gershwin's 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The Caldecott Honor recipient Marjorie Flack (1897-1958) authored and illustrated many beloved children's books, including The Story About Ping and The Boats on the River.


"It is difficult to believe that this very modern feminist tale was originally written in 1939. A gem of a fantasy in which kindness and cleverness win out over size and brawn."--Learning Magazine
