I found this book at the weekly boot sale - I don't care much for the verses but the illustration makes my heart leap - (as does the story of the illustrators). Alice and Martin Provensen partnership created just downright beautiful work, they worked together for 40+ years - speaking after the death of her husband - Alice was unsure if she could create anymore books “You see,” she says, “we were a true collaboration. Martin and I really were one artist.” Thankfully Alice did do more work, and, it would seem I now have more work to do in tracking down the other books.
