About the Author

Charlotte Zolotow--author, editor, publisher, and educator--had one of the most distinguished careers in the field of children's literature. She wrote more than seventy books, many of which are picture-book classics including the Caldecott Honor medalist Mr.Rabbit and the Lovely Present. Born in Norfolk, Virginia in 1915,

William Pene du Bois, as both artist and writer, charmed generations of readers with his distinct combination of inventiveness and elegant simplicity. Two of his most popular books are The Twenty One Balloons, winner of the 1948 Newbery Medal, and Lion, a Caldecott Honor Book in 1957. With handsome, delicate artwork, William Pene du Bois tailored his unmistakable style to suit Charlotte Zolotow's groundbreaking and tender story of a boy who wants a doll.
