Korte biografie
Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories before she died at the age of 42 after surgery for a burst appendix. She published under her own name as well as under several pen names including Timothy Hay, Golden MacDonald, Juniper Sage, and Kaintuck Brown. According to a Web site dedicated to her, before Margaret began writing books for children, fairytales and fables dominated the world of illustrated stories. But Margaret, or Brownie, as her friends called her, wrote with the then "new" idea that children would rather read about their own lives instead. Many of her books are considered classics of the genre.
Golden MacDonald, Juniper Sage, Timothy Hay, and Kaintuck Brown are pen names of Margaret Wise Brown.



Book with strange combination suggestions in Bug Collectors (september 2019)


Twelve songs from picture book legend Margaret Wise Brown, creator of such childhood classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, are paired with illustrations from twelve different contemporary illustrators in this posthumous (by many years) collection. Contributing illustrators include luminaries like Caldecott medalist Sophie Blackall and two-time Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet, as well as personal favorites like Carin Berger (who is actually the reason I sought this title out). The book includes a CD by Tom Proutt and Emily Gary, who have put the songs in this collection to music...

Margaret Wise Brown has had quite a posthumous publishing career, with so many of her stories and books seeing print long after her death in 1952, thanks to an extensive cache of papers she left with her sister, which were then subsequently discovered by Amy Gary, author of the biography In the Great Green Room: The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown, and the editor of the Margaret Wise Brown Estate. Gary provides the introduction to Goodnight Songs, setting out this history, and describing how Brown had turned to song-writing, in her later years. As mentioned, I sought this one out because I am an admirer of Carin Berger's work, and she was a contributing illustrator, but as it happens I was familiar with all twelve illustrators, and have enjoyed their work elsewhere, just as I enjoyed it here. I appreciated the myriad of illustrative styles on display, and I found the songs engaging. That said, I don't think I would have been as engaged, if I didn't read the songs with the CD, reading first, and then again while listening to the music. I've seen a few unfavorable reviews of this one, and they invariably describe these selections as "poems." While the can certainly be taken that way, it's pretty clear they weren't written simply as poems, but as actual songs, and were meant to be accompanied by music. When experienced this way, they are very taking, and Proutt and Gary are to be commended for their musical arrangements. Recommended to picture book readers looking for a good collection of original lullabies and goodnight songs.
