About the Author:

Margaret Wise Brown, cherished for her unique ability to convey a child’s experience and perspective of the world, transformed the landscape of children’s literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include Nibble Nibble, My World, Where Have You Been?, Christmas in the Barn, The Dead Bird, and Sneakers, the Seaside Cat.



Margaret Wise Brown is the author of such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny, and Big Red Barn. These, and her many other books continue to delight readers and listeners year after year.

Nancy Edwards Calder, a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, is the illustrator of The Christmas House by Ann Turner. She lives with her husband, Marshall, and her son, Ian, in Huntington Station, NY.

From Publishers Weekly:

Three children sneak out of bed to observe their cozy house awash in the quiet magic of Christmas Eve. Brown's (Goodnight Moon) text balances heart-pounding, childlike excitement with graceful imagery ("The Christmas tree was all there, trimmed with shiny glints of red and blue and green that flickered in the dying firelight"). In Calder's (The Christmas House) soft, grainy paintings, quaint and beautifully appointed houses nestle in the hush of a nighttime snowfall evoking suburban New England. The gray interior light of the children's house is warmed and brightened by the glow of a fire in the hearth, lanterns and bulbs twined around an old-fashioned Christmas tree. Ages 4-8.
