Favourite fiction picture book authors

Recommended Posts

Who are your favourite picture authors. I really like Marguerite de Angeli. Yonie Wondernose and Henner's Lydia are probably my favourites just because I personally know one of Yonie's/Lydia's nieces. My friend has vouched for the authenticity of the stories, even down to such details as the existence of a truck that is pictured in Henner's Lydia at the foot of Lydia's bed. How neat is that!? Who are your favourite authors and why? I might just have to expand my horizons next time I go to the library. :)

I'm going to print this list and maybe alphabetize it for ease of use for our next library trip and see if I can find some really nice books. Thanks all. :)

If you don't mind browsing through pins you can view my favourite picture books here.

Some of them are loved just for the illustrations, others the story, and some for both those reason.

Anita Lobel

Diane Stanley

I love Shirley Hughes too and know what you mean about them speaking to you. 

They are so true to life when you have little ones in your home.

Glad to find another fan.
