"Well researched, using both historical materials and current commentary on children's literature in general and Lenski in particular, this is a must read for fans of Lenski's books and an interesting biography in its own right."--Library Journal "Lois Lenski, author and illustrator of books for young readers, broke new and important ground with works that engagingly captured the lives of real children in the diverse America of the mid-twentieth century. In this book, Bobbie Malone, through interviews and extensive exploration of Lenski's letters and original travel and research notes, reveals the complex life of this prolific yet private writer."--Michael Covey, grandson of Lois Lenski and president of the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation "Lois Lenski: Storycatcher beautifully captures the life of one of America's most gifted and prolific writers and illustrators of children's books. Bobbie Malone shows how Lenski celebrated the children of sharecroppers, coal miners, and migrant field workers. The generations of readers who read and loved Lenski's work as children will embrace this book."--William Ferris, author of The Storied South: Voices of Writers and Artists
