3rd March Erik Blegvad (1923)
Erik Blegvad is the Danish illustrator responsible for a large number of books many of which are still in print today. As well as the many books he illustrated for his author wife, Lenore he illustrated Mary Norton's Bed-Knob and Broomstick, Judith Viorst's classic, the iconic book about the death of a pet, The Tenth Good Thing About Barney, and many of Charlotte Zolotow's books about childhood. A good example of this is I Like To Be Little.
