About Virginia Lee Burton

Virginia Lee Burton (1909-1968) was the talented author and illustrator of some of the most enduring books ever written for children. The winner of the 1942 Caldecott Medal for THE LITTLE HOUSE, Burton's books include heroes and happy endings, lively illustrations, and a dash of nostalgia. She lived with her two sons, Aristides and Michael, and her husband George Demetrios, the sculptor, in a section of Gloucester, Massachusetts, called Folly Cove. Here she taught a class in design and from it emerged the Folly Cove designers, a group of internationally known professional artisans. She is the author of many classic children's picture books, including MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL and KATY AND THE BIG SNOW.

Review Text

From what is available,this promises to be another beguiling book in the series which includes Choo Choo and Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Children have an instinctive personal feeling about houses, and the idea of the friendly little house that found itself forgotten when the city moved in on it will catch their imaginations. The pictures are in full color an?? on every page. Virginia Burton has a sense of pattern that makes her pictures almost like a tapestry. (Kirkus Reviews)
