23rd May Margaret Wise Brown (1910 - 1952)
American author, Margaret Wise Brown would be 100 today! Quite a feat, if she was still alive, but her books have certainly lasted the distance. Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny would probably be her most well-known books and certainly they are the most borrowed in my library, but so many of her titles that were published as Little Golden Books are still in print as well. This year's kindergarten has a large contingency of train-mad boys so Two Little Trains has also been rediscovered. This website is a good source of information and You Tube has a film version of Goodnight Moon.
