The Little Fisherman

  Author:   Margaret Wise Brown  
  Artist :   Dahlov Ipcar    
  Publisher:  Islandport Press

As a “writer of songs and nonsense,” the words of Margaret Wise Brown have delighted generations, from Goodnight Moon to The Runaway Bunny. This lesser-known classic, written in 1945, tells a rhythmic, comparative story of two fishermen—one big and one little as they spend a day working at sea.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote more than 100 children's books, including the beloved classic Goodnight Moon. Brown often wrote at her island home on Vinalhaven, Maine. Her Caldecott Medal-winning book, The Little Island, was based on her Maine retreat. Brown's prolific career was cut short when she died from complications following surgery at age forty-two. More than fifty years later, her books, some written under pen names, remain favorites of parents and children alike.

In a career spanning more than eighty years, Maine artist Dahlov Ipcar has written and illustrated more than thirty children's and young adult books, starting with The Little Fisherman in 1945 and including "The Cat at Night" and "My Wonderful Christmas Tree". Dahlov Ipcar was born in Vermont and summered in Maine after her parents (the famed sculptor William Zorach and artist Marguerite Zorach) bought a farm on Georgetown Island. The Little Fisherman launched her prolific career.
