About the Author

(1918-) Marcia Brown, a native of New York state, was unable to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor when it came time to leave her large family and go to college during the Depression. State Teacher’s certification was more affordable and immediately lucrative. After three years of teaching, however, she did decide that there was another dream she wished to pursue and perhaps could achieve. She left teaching to move to New York City where she worked as a children’s librarian while she worked to get her picture books published. She is one of two illustrators to have won the Caldecott medal three times and utilizes a variety of mediums and styles in her work.
