Milton Public Library

Tomfoolery, Randolph Caldecott and the rambunctious coming-of-age of children's books, written by Michelle Markel ; illustrated by Barbara McClintock - hardcover

Summary
Meet Randolph Caldecott, the artist who revolutionized picture book illustration and for whom the prestigious Caldecott medal is named! From acclaimed picture book creators Michelle Markel and Barbara McClintock comes a lively, humorous, and energetically informative biography that celebrates the spirit of storytelling in art. Quick! If you don't move fast, you'll miss him-there he goes-Randolph Caldecott, future famous illustrator. His sketchbook is full of hurly-burly: wild weather, frisky animals, and people so sprightly they can barely hold onto the pages. But in the 1850s, there were no children's books like that. Not yet
