The world of children’s literature lost a significant figure earlier this month.
Charles Santore, an award-winning illustrator who brought to life such classics as The Classic Tale of Peter Rabbit and Other Cherished Stories, The Wizard of Oz, and Alice’s Adventures Underground, died August 11 at age eighty-four.
Santore also wrote and illustrated more than a dozen children’s books of his own, the latest of which, Jabberwocky, comes out this spring.
You can read more about Santore’s life and work in his obituary in Publishers Weekly.
