Description
Robert McCloskey was author of such famous children's books as Make Way for Ducklings, One Morning in Maine, and Time of Wonder, but little is known of his life. This memoir by his daughter Jane reveals the reclusive artist that few really knew, including his Midwestern upbringing, the pivotal event in Mexico that shaped his life, and the family's years on their island in Maine. Including never-before-seen artwork from the family archives.
