Arnold Lobel illustrated more than 70 books and wrote 28 of his own, including" Frog and Toad Are Friends," a Caldecott Honor Book; "Frog and Toad Together," a Newbery Honor Book; and Fables, the 1981 Caldecott Medal winner. "The Arnold Lobel Book of Mother Goose" represents more than three years work for Lobel. Arnold Lobel died in 1987."
Mother Goose glows with renewed youth, thanks to the genius of Arnold Lobel. His illustrations are so abundant, and so full of color, fun, and imagination, that the book is not to be missed. "The New Yorker""
