The illustrator is Barbara Cooney and with a bit of internet research I was able to find out that she won the Caldecott Medal twice and in her acceptance speech in 1959 she said...

Welcome to my blog. I am a mother of two teenagers and married to my high school sweet heart. I love crafting, sewing and making things. I love baking but dislike cooking (Luckily Steven is the most amazing cook). I have been fortunate to set up and run Stitchbird, my shop and love being able to work with fabrics and lovely crafty and handmade things every day.
