It's Monday, Picture Books Past. Marjorie Flack (1897-1958) illustrated the classic, The Story of Ping. She also wrote and illustrated books about the terrier, Angus, like Angus and the Ducks. Another favorite book of hers is The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes. She won a Caldecott Honor for Boats on the Water. Many of her books are still enjoyed today because of her solid storytelling and gentle humor. Order up a bunch from the library to enjoy and to study their lasting strengths.
