About Ruth Krauss

Ruth Krauss, a member of the experimental Writer's Laboratory at the Bank Street School in New York City in the 1940s, imaginatively used humour and invented words to create some of the very first books for children that highlighted the child's inner life. She collaborated with some of the greatest illustrators in children's literature, including Maurice Sendak, who described her as a 'giant' in children's literature, and her husband, Crockett Johnson. Helen Oxenbury grew up in Ipswich, England, and has always loved nothing more than drawing. She studied costume design and then worked on stage sets for theatre, film and TV. After marrying John Burningham, another eminent illustrator, she began illustrating children's books and has gone on to win several prestigious awards and wide-spread critical acclaim for her work.
