Biografia breu

Marguerite de Angeli, née Lofft, was born in Lapeer, Michigan, and grew up in Philadelphia. At age 15, she began to sing professionally and left high school for more musical training. In 1910, she married John Dailey de Angeli, a violinist, with whom she had six children. In 1921, she began studying drawing and soon went on to illustrate first a Sunday school paper and then national magazines such as The Ladies' Home Journal. She illustrated books for authors including Dorothy Canfield Fisher. She published her own first book, Ted and Nina Go to the Grocery Store, in 1935. Over her 50-year career, she became one of the best-known and most highly-acclaimed author/illustrators in American children's literature. She won the Newbery Medal in 1950 for her most famous book, The Door in the Wall. She published her autobiography, Butter at the Old Price, in 1971.

This was the first book published for children that dealt with racism in America.

Above all this is a nice family story.
It has the luminous and sweet illustrations typical of a De Angeli book.

I found the emphasis on being clean and tidy to be heavy handed and discordant.

This is a great book for illustrating the charm of nature study and a lovely book for springtime.

I read this over three days as it is text heavy and more like a highly illustrated short story than a picture book.… (més)

Am I allowed to find this book really boring? I ought to like it, but just could not read in with interest. Instead I skipped through to get the main ideas. I think it was just so slow paced after reading a whole bunch of rousing adventures.
