The Runaway Bunny Summary


The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown

The runaway bunny, first published in 1942 and never out of print, has indeed become a classic. Two generations of readers have fallen in love with the gentle magic of its reassuring words and loving pictures. It is here published in a new edition for which the artist has redrawn some of his pictures; they are wholly in keeping with the softy poetic timeless spirit of his famous originals.

About Margaret Wise Brown


Margaret Wise Brown, cherished for her unique ability to convey a child's experience and perspective of the world, transformed the landscape of children's literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include My World; Christmas in the Barn; The Dead Bird; North, South, East, West; and Good Day, Good Night. Clement Hurd (1908-1988) is best known for illustrating Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny, the classic picture books by Margaret Wise Brown. He studied painting in Paris with Fernand Leger and others in the early 1930s. After his return to the United States in 1935, he began to work in children's books. He illustrated more than one hundred books, many of them with his wife, Edith Thacher Hurd, including the Johnny Lion books, The Day the Sun Danced, and The Merry Chase. A native of New York City, he lived most of his life in Vermont and California. Clement Hurd (1908-1988) se graduo de Yale University. Estudio pintura en Paris en los anos 1930 con Fernand Leger, entre otros. Alli fue donde desarrollo su estilo caracteristico, compuesto de colores de fuerte contraste. Hurd estuvo casado con la escritora Edith Thacher Hurd, con quien tambien creo muchos libros que se convirtieron en favoritos de los ninos.
