Top of the Shelf: Robert McCloskey: A Private Life in Words & Pictures

Robert McCloskey: A Private Life in Words and Pictures by Jane McCloskey (Seapoint Books) Adult fans of Make Way for Ducklings, Time of Wonder, and Homer Price will enjoy browsing through this book filled with Jane McCloskey's memories of her father as well as the details and insights she includes about his life and work before her appearance. Nearly every page is dotted with images from his eight, still popular and unforgettable books along with "back stories" of their gestation. Inclusion of some of his non-book art, rarely seen outside the family, makes this 200-page book a special treat.
