Summary "Celebrating one of the most dynamic forces in American children's literature, Dorothy Kunhardt's Collected Works is the first survey of the life and work of this beloved author. Best known for Pat the Bunny (1940), Dorothy Meserve Kunhardt (1901-1979) was a tireless innovator, publishing more than 40 books in three decades. Drawn entirely from the collection of the Meserve-Kunhardt Foundation, this publication brings Dorothy Kunhardt's work to life through photographs, writing, drawings, book mock-ups, unpublished manuscripts, as well as reproducion of first-edition books--among them Junket Is Nice (1933), Lucky Mrs. Ticklefeather (1935), and Tiny Animal Stories (1948). Also included are research materials and papers related to Kunhardt's second consequential career as an Abraham Lincoln scholar."--Back cover.
