From a Caldecott Medal-winning artist and storyteller comes this single-volume edition of three classic children's tales. Louis Slobodkin's fanciful watercolor images accompany Too Many Mittens, a wintertime tale of lost and found; A Good Place to Hide, in which Susan escapes from her persistent brothers; and The Little Mermaid Who Could Not Sing, recounting an enchanting little sea creature's discovery of her hidden talent.
About the Author
At the age of 15, Louis Slobodkin (1903 - 75) entered the Beaux Arts Institute of Design, where he studied drawing, composition, and sculpture. In the course of his six-year studies, he won more than 20 medals and was awarded the Louis Tiffany Fellowship. Slobodkin illustrated nearly 90 books, 50 of which he wrote, and in 1944 he received the Caldecott Medal for his illustrations for James Thurber's Many Moons. Poet and author of children's books Florence Slobodkin (1905 - 94) collaborated with her husband on five books, including the classic Too Many Mittens.
