Om författaren

Robert Lawson was born in 1892 in New York City. He studied art for three years under illustrator Howard Giles. His career as an illustrator began in 1914, when his illustration for a poem about the invasion of Belgium was published in Harper's Weekly. In 1922, he illustrated his first children's visa mer book, The Wonderful Adventures of Little Prince Toofat. Subsequently he illustrated dozens of children's books by other authors, including such well-known titles as The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf and Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater. He has illustrated as many as forty books by other authors, and another seventeen books that he himself was author of, including Ben and Me: An Astonishing Life of Benjamin Franklin By His Good Mouse Amos and Rabbit Hill. His work was widely admired, and he became the first, and so far only, person to be given both the Caldecott Medal (They Were Strong and Good, 1941) and the Newbery Medal (Rabbit Hill, 1945). Ben and Me earned a Lewis Carroll Shelf Award in 1961. Lawson died in 1957 at his home in Westport, Connecticut, in a house that he referred to as Rabbit Hill, since it had been the setting for his book of the same name. He was 64.

Allmänna fakta



Peter Pepperell abruptly stopped growing at the age of 7, after which he started getting smaller. But while his body became tinier, his mind got bigger and so did his sense of adventure. When he learns of an overseas madman who's threatening the world with a compact but powerfully destructive weapon, the 4-inch-high boy climbs on the back of a friendly seagull and heads for Europe to disarm the evil scientist -- and to do a little sightseeing along the way.

It has been a while since Folks lived in the Big House, and an even longer time has passed since there has been a garden at the House. All the animals of the Hill are very excited about the new Folks moving in, and they wonder how things are going to change. It's only a matter of time before the animals of the Hill find out just who is moving in, and they may be a little bit surprised when they do.

Historically interesting, but it certainly wouldn't win the Caldecott medal today, for more reasons than one.

Quite fun! I haven't read this since I was a child. I will say that Amos is quite fond of tooting his own horn! Even if he made a mistake! I look forward to our discussion in the Vintage Book Circle group. I listened this time, but I did check out the paper copy as well. The illustrations are marvelous! Robert Lawson is a genius!
