it was amazing
bookshelves: books-on-writing

This book should be on the "to read" list of anyone who loves children's books. Ursula Nordstrom edited Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, E.B. White, Laura Ingalls Wilder (nominally, apparently she never changed a word of her manuscripts), Margaret and H.A. Rey, Margaret Wise Brown, Ruth Krauss, Ezra Jack Keats...need I go on? Her correspondence is warm, witty, and passionate. She was a woman ascending the ladder of publishing in a time when that was uncommon rare.
