Description
Ursula Nordstrom, Director of Harper's Department of Books for Boys and Girls from 1940 to 1973, is a legend -- one of the most creative forces in children's books. Working with such talents as Maurice Sendak, E. B. White, Margaret Wise Brown, Shel Silverstein, Garth Williams, and John Steptoe -- to name only a few of her authors and illustrators -- Nordstrom recognized that each was a genius to be nurtured, encouraged, and published. In giving them what they needed most -- a bully, a best friend, a teacher, even a mother -- she was rewarded with classic children's books that will last for all time.

Here are the editorial letters of this indefatigable, irresistible woman. Noted children's literature scholar and historian Leonard S. Marcus has gathered an exceptional collection of her correspondence, highlighting her wit, insight and incredible talent. Entertaining, thought-provoking, and moving, her letters give us a revealing picture of another true genius: a gifted editor, mentor, and friend.
