Pequena biografia
Ingri d'Aulaire (1904-1980) was an American children's artist and illustrator, who worked in collaboration with her husband and fellow artist, Edgar Parin d'Aulaire. Born Ingri Mortenson in Kongsburg, Norway, she studied art in Norway, Germany and France, and met Edgar Parin d'Aulaire when she was a student in Munich. They married in 1925, and immigrated to the USA shortly thereafter, settling in Brooklyn in 1929. After pursuing separate careers initially, the couple turned to illustrating children's books together, releasing their first collaborative effort, The Magic Rug, in 1931. They settled in Wilton, Connecticut in 1941, and lived there until their deaths in the 1980s. Awarded the 1940 Caldecott Medal for their picture-book biography of Abraham Lincoln, the d'Aulaires published other children's biographies, as well as some notable works on Greek and Norse mythology.

The beautiful illustrations one has come to expect in all the d'Aulaire books. But their chosen media and style were better suited to other subjects. It seems like any narrative where the characters wear tailored outfits is going to have less appealing illustrations. That's why "Pocahontas" and "Leif the Lucky" and even "Abe Lincoln" are books that are far easier on the eyes than "Columbus" or "George Washington".

Were there really bison in Virginia!? The skunks, the squirrels, and the beavers are all excellent, as expected.… (mais)
