Author information

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner (for "Make Way for Ducklings "and "Time of Wonder"), McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for "Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, "and "Journey Cake, Ho!" by Ruth Sawyer. He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000. You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio."

Gorgeous book with lovely illustrations and a sweet storyline. My 5 year old son has loved this book for the past year and still enjoys having it read to him. He loves the scene with the policeman keeping all the cars at bay while the mother duck and her ducklings cross the road. Very sweet book, highly recommended.
