About the Author
Deceased. ESTHER WILKIN (1902-1985) wrote several Little Golden Books for her sister Eloise Wilkin to illustrate. Deceased. ELOISE WILKIN (1904-1987) is one of the most beloved and prolific Golden Books illustrators. To many, her work embodies "that Little Golden Book feeling" as well as a certain, and seemingly simpler, time in America. Wilkin's loving depiction of the natural world, and her paintings of cherubic, chubby children, helped make Golden Books an icon. Her Little Golden Books My Little Golden Book About God and Prayers for Children have never been out of print.
