Description



About the Book



MacDonald and Weisgard depict the changes that occur on a small island as the seasons come and go, as day changes to night, and as a storm approaches.



Book Synopsis



Children's book icon Margaret Wise Brown - author of the cherished classic Goodnight Moon - and Caldecott Medal-winner Leonard Weisgard bring young readers an enduring picture book about the magic of nature.

Winner of the 1947 Caldecott Medal, this beautifully moving story centers around a little island in the midst of the wide ocean, and the curious kitten who comes to visit. As the seasons pass, the island and the creatures who call it home witness an ever-changing array of sights, smells, and sounds - proving that, no matter how small, we are all an important part of the world.



From the Back Cover



Once there was a little island in the ocean. That little island changes as the seasons come and go. The storm and the day and night change it. So do the lobsters and seals and gulls that stop by. Then one day a kitten visits the little island and learns a secret that every child will enjoy.



About the Author



Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952), best known as the author of Goodnight Moon, wrote countless children's books inspired by her belief that the very young are fascinated by the simple pleasures of the world around them. Among her many bestselling books are The Little Island, The Golden Egg Book, The Color Kittens, and The Sailor Dog.

Leonard Weisgard (1916-2000) was a beloved and award-winning illustrator of more than 200 children's books, perhaps best known for his collaboration with the author Margaret Wise Brown. His books include The Little Island (for which he won the Caldecott Medal in 1947), The Golden Egg Book, and The Golden Bunny.
