About the Author
Barbara Rogasky (1933-2011) was a longtime collaborator of Trina Schart Hyman's, and their work together included The Golem and Winter Poems. Trina Schart Hyman (1938-2004) was one of America's greatest and best-loved illustrators for children, winning a Caldecott Medal and Three Caldecott Honor Medals. She is best known for her fairy tales and medeival art, and for her artwork for A Child's Calendar by John Updike.
"Hyman's iconic watercolor art, full of decoration and embellishment, has been 'lovingly restored' (through digital means) in this welcome reissue. The hues are crisp and bright, with everything from the emotive facial expressions to the filigreed borders looking rich and vibrant. Some may prefer their careworn edi-tions (and the 'dark, brooding romanticism' of the art, as characterized by the original Horn Book review, is now somewhat less so). But this volume should be embraced, especially by those new to Rogasky and Hyman's retelling. --The Horn Book
