MAURICE SENDAK (1928-2012) was one of the preeminent children's book illustrators and authors of the twentieth century. Best-known for the Caldecott Medal-winning "Where the Wild Things Are," he was also the recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen Award for children's book illustration, the Laura Ingalls Wilder Medal, and the National Medal of Arts. WILHELM GRIMM (1786-1859) was a German author, linguist, and folklorist who, along with his older brother, Jakob, published "Children's and Household Tales" in 1812. Popularly known as "Grimms' Fairy Tales," this collection was continually revised by the brothers and ultimately included 210 folk tales, among them many that have become famous around the world.
