She took classes at the Art Institute of Chicago and at the University of California at Los Angeles before finding a job at the animation studio of Walter Lantz. She met her future husband, Martin Provensen, mostra'n més while he was working on a Navy training film during World War II. They married in 1944 and relocated to Washington D.C., where she worked as a graphic artist for the Office of Strategic Services. They later moved to New York and became known as an author-illustrator picture book team. They created many award-winning picture books including A Visit to William Blake's Inn: Poems for Innocent and Inexperienced Travelers by Nancy Willard, which won a 1982 Caldecott Honor, and The Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot, which won the 1984 Caldecott Medal. Their other books included A Year at Maple Hill Farm, Our Animal Friends at Maple Hill Farm, Karen's Curiosity, Karen's Opposites, The Fuzzy Duckling, Katie the Kitten, The Color Kittens by Margaret Wise Brown, and A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. They also created Tony the Tiger, which was the advertising symbol of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes. She continued working after her husband's death in 1987. Her books included The Buck Stops Here: The Presidents of the United States, A Day in the Life of Murphy, Punch in New York, and Klondike Gold.

This book is delightful and funny. It describes the characters and activities of all the animals on the farm.

Many of us have a book or two from their early childhood that we seek out as adults with memories based on half-remembered (and frequently misremembered) details. This picture book was one of mine, and I just found it! The only particulars I had to work off of were 1) an illustration of an ice-skating boy positioned with his skates perpendicular to one another (incidentally, this gave me the conviction that this is how one skated), and 2) the last page depicted a garden archway covered in flowers.

As for the book itself, it's a joyful look at all the fun things there are to do as the seasons change (assuming you live in a clime with changing seasons). The illustrations are cute, and I'm delighted to have successfully hunted it down, despite it being out of print and not having aged well with respect to diverse representation.

A truly beautiful, charming book. Newly released from a set of unpublished dummy pages by the celebrated illustrators Alice and Martin Provenson, it’s a character sketch of the farm cat Max, a singleton kitten who grows up to taunt other cats, smile at the horse, torment the dog, chase the chickens, and who LOVES to help make the bed. The ink and watercolor pictures are riotous, funny, and display Max in all his moods, and his lovely farm in all its glories of trees and grasses and the evening sky…when Max’s “real life” begins. The final image brought a tear of wonder to this reader’s eye, evoking my own rambunctious, complicated, serious and mischievous rural tabby cat. I cherish this little book… (més)

A great example of dedication to a dream and perseverance. Try, try, again, design and redesign. A good choice for the aspiring inventor in your life.
