Some from the Moon, Some from the Sun: Poems and Songs for Everyone
(Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR), Sept. 4, 2001)
A charming book of children's rhymes by the Caldecott Medalist.I'm the king of the castle, Get down, you dirty rascal!There she goes, There she goes,All dressed up in her Sunday clothes.When I make a book for children, I draw it the same as I would for grownups. I draw for people of any age. —Margot ZemachMargot Zemach was a visionary artist whose contribution to twentieth-century children's literature is one of the most significant and innovative ever. Farrar Straus Giroux is proud to be publishing her final book, a collection of timeless verses paired with Zemach's glorious watercolors. From the familiar "This Little Pig Went to Market" to the lesser-known "Brave News Is Come to Town" to the enduringly popular "Bingo," these twenty-seven rhymes and songs — many of them favorites from Zemach's youth — are lovingly presented for readers of all ages.Completing the volume is a brief scrapbook of Zemach's childhood artwork, family photographs, and autobiographical writings and sketches, assembled by her daughter Kaethe Zemach-Bersin. It is a unique personal glimpse into Margot Zemach's life for those encountering her work for the first time, as well as for those who have long admired her.
