Author Biography

Esphyr Slobodkina (1908-2002), internationally renowned artist and author of the children's classic Caps for Sale, was among the first female American artists to explore abstraction and the first to use collage in American storybooks. She studied art in Russia and China before immigrating to the United States in 1928. She was a founding member of the American Abstract Artists group, and her work is represented in prominent museum collections across the country.

Reviews

"Rhythmic, repetitive, child-friendly storytelling. The story feels satisfyingly complete." -- New York Times Book Review "How often does a sequel pick up exactly where its predecessor left off-seventy-five yars later? A worthy successor to Slobodkina's original." -- Publishers Weekly
