Book Overview

It's a rare and exciting event when two giants of children's literature work on a book together, and The Little Fisherman is one of those books. Written by noted author Margaret Wise Brown-just two years after her classic Runaway Bunny was released-The Little Fisherman was a milestone in the illustrious career of legendary illustrator, Dahlov Ipcar, as it was the very first children's book illustrated by the then twenty-eight-year-old artist when it was published in the spring of 1945. The story features the charming main character and his simple and imaginative day spent catching fish, in comparison and contrast to the big fisherman's day at sea. Children will love the size differences throughout the book, of both the fishermen and their boats, especially when the imaginative sizes are set against the riveting and realistic fishing scenes. With its authentic coastal scenes and bright palette, The Little Fisherman helped establish Ipcar's distinctive artistic style, and ignited a four-decade-long creative run that has seen her write and illustrate more than thirty children's books, all from a studio overlooking her farm on Georgetown Island, Maine. Now out in paperback for the first time.
