AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

MARGARET WISE BROWN (1910-1952), famous for writing Goodnight Moon, wrote dozens of bestselling stories for Golden Books, including The Golden Egg Book, The Color Kittens, and Home For A Bunny.

GERTRUDE CRAMPTON (1909-1996), was a teacher who created two of Golden Books' most iconic characters: Tootle and Scuffy the Tugboat.

TIBOR GERGELY (1900-1978), who immigrated to the United States from Hungary in 1939, illustrated more than 70 Golden Books. With crisp detail and vibrant color, he brought some of the most beloved Golden characters to life, including Scuffy the Tugboat, The Little Red Caboose, and Tootle.

ART SEIDEN (1923-2004) was a successful illustrator in the advertising world, and also illustrated over 300 children's books in his long career.
