    John Hancock in Esther Forbes Johnny Tremain Volume One 1859 to 1959 includes entries about titles as diverse as Roller Skates and Prince and the Pauper and authors from Frances Burnett to Jean George In Volume Two 1960 to 1984 entries on Virginia Hamilton Laurence Yep and Mildred Taylor signify the appearance of more ethnic writing for children but one also finds long recognized names such as Madeleine L Engle Scott O Dell and Keith Robertson Although the earlier book covers a longer time span the second volume because of the increased number of books published for children in those years is about 300 pages longer Another plus to this work is the use of cross references One can for instance start with the title Tuck Everlasting be lead to the main character Winnie Foster go on to the author Natalie Babbitt which will then lead to her other works Kneekock Rise or Search for Delicious and on and on One can spend hours hop scotching across the entries retrieving material to make the reading of children s books a rich and enlightening experience All in all a veritable treasury for scholars and browsers alike Myth Magic and Mystery One Hundred Years of American Children s Book Illustration Essays by Michael Patrick Hearn Trinkett Clark and H Nicholas B Clark In 1996 a groundbreaking exhibition of original children s picture book art was mounted at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Norfolk Virginia Although Myth Magic and Mystery was only on display for a few months and had only short stays in Memphis Tennessee and Wilmington Delaware the essence of the exhibit can be still found in this hardbound full color catalog The 242 page book is divided into sections paralleling the divisions of the exhibit itself In the beginning chapter Discover Explore Enjoy Michael Patrick Hearn one of the three curators sets the scene He traces the British forerunners to American picture book art Beatrix Potter John Tenniel Arthur Rackham segues to into a discussion of early 20th century giants Howard Pyle Peter Newell and N C Wyeth continues with a look at the work of Wanda Gag Virginia Lee Burton Robert Lawson before concluding with among others the works of Maurice Sendak Leo and Diane Dillon and William Steig Deliberately arranged in an un chronological fashion Hearn tells us to spur comparison and contrast the volume offers hours of viewing pleasure and will send devotees of the picture book off to find the actual title under discussion The second section by Trinkett Clark now curator at the Mead Museum in Amherst provides And the Dish Ran Away with the Spoon A First Look at the World of Words from Mother Goose to Dr Seuss A fascinating special feature is a complete alphabet created from a selection of ABC books featuring illustrations from Roger Duvoisin to Marcia Brown and Richard Scarry The last three chapters written by Nick Clark now director at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book
