ACHUKA Book of the Day 5 Mar 2021
M. (Marilyn) B. Goffstein, who died in 2017, was an American writer and illustrator known for her precise line drawings and an ability to tell a story in the fewest possible words, using a pleasingly subtle sense of humour.
The marvellous New York Review Children’s Collection now brings two of the small-form little hardbacks by this talented minimalist back into print—this title (f.p. 1967) and Fish For Supper (1976), a Caldecott Honor book.
I can recommend this Publishers Weekly piece for a little background on Goffstein.
