New Illustrations for Margaret Wise Brown Classics

9780060289317-us-300HarperCollins Children’s Books is releasing newly designed editions of some of Margaret Wise Brown’s lesser-known picture books, starting with THE DEAD BIRD illustrated by Christian Robinson.

The picture-book classic, a gently sobering story of four children finding a dead bird at the park, was first published in 1958 with illustrations by Remy Charlip. Christian Robinson, recipient of the 2016 Caldecott Honor for his illustrations in Matt de la Pena’s LAST STOP ON MARKET STREET, gives the timeless story a fresh look for today’s readers.

THE DEAD BIRD is the first reissue of the “Explore the World of Margaret Wise Brown” program HarperCollins Children’s Books launches this month.
