In this eccentric biography, Mac Barnett tells the story of acclaimed children's book author Margaret Wise Brown. As Barnett comically details, Margaret was not one to follow society's normal rules from wearing unusual clothing to purchasing an entire garden worth's of flowers in one day. This book is filled with both random and pertinent facts about Brown's life, as well as her accolades and accomplishments as a beloved author of books for children.

This book is a great vehicle for getting kids thinking about the connection between an author and their literary works. It would be a great supplement for an author study on Margaret Wise Brown, and could also be used in accompaniment with other books about authors such as this biography about Patricia Polacco:

In this quirky biography, Barnett presents factual details about author Margaret Wise Brown's life, but also focuses more on some of the unusual things she did like keep a large number of rabbits as pets (and then use their furs to make coats after they died) and buying an entire cart worth of flowers for a party with her first paycheck as an author. A fairly large section of the book discusses Brown's 'feud' with New York Public Library's librarians who refused to put her book in their collection for years.

I'm really not sure how to feel about this book. Going into it and expecting a straightforward biography was definitely a mistake as this weird, sort of rambling story was off-putting as a result. If you go into it knowing that it will be unusual, that would probably help. A second reading for those of us in the first category might help as well.

It's certainly not going to be a book that would be helpful for a child writing a biographical report for school. But as something just to read, it's an interesting musing about what really matters in life (is it your date of birth or your fondness for skinny-dipping in the sea outside your door?) as well as a meta look at literature. The book often calls notice to its own page length as well as pointing out things like authors being real people who go grocery shopping just like everyone else.

In the end, I would recommend this book but with the caveat that it's not your typical biography. It's an interesting bit of meta-literature about what makes a good book as well as what components of daily living make a life. It's wandering, meandering look at Margaret Wise Brown that will appeal to child readers. ( )

Wow, here is a book that, like Margaret herself and her work, respects the wandering, wondering mind of a child. A tribute that is gentle, loving and honest. Love how the last line circles back to the beginning, the earlier line “The important thing about Margaret Wise Brown is that she wrote books.” Captures her voice. ( )

This is an incredibly unique book, It is a biography about children's author Margaret Wise Brown. And it is also a book about books. And what makes books good is the same thing that makes life good. ( )

"Margaret Wise Brown lived for 42 years.
This book is 42 pages long.
You can't fit somebody's life into 42 pages, so I am just going to tell you some important things."

Margaret's life story as told by Mac Barnett is a meandering one, but it concludes, "The important thing about Margaret Wise Brown is that she wrote books."

In between, readers encounter Margaret's editor, Ursula Nordstrom; and visit the NYPL (and Patience and Fortitude, of course); and meet Anne Carroll Moore, who guarded the children's room at the NYPL and held sway over what books librarians bought for their libraries. ACM did not recommend Goodnight Moon for purchase, but Barnett doesn't have to say that Goodnight Moon prevailed.
