Beschreibung

Great for fans of award-winning picture book, Grandfather's Journey. In this warm, poignant and highly praised story, a little girl hears how, long ago, another little red-haired girl-her great-grandmother-sailed across the sea with her older brother to join their immigrant parents in a strange new land called America.

"Goode's evocative illustrations effectively capture the immigration scene of the late 1800s with appropriate costumes and background details."-Booklist (starred review)

"Levinson's first book is a literary event, written with a quiet understatement that magnifies its emotional effects. So do Goode's superb paintings . . ."-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Young readers can return to the book many times with satisfaction. . . . An excellent introduction to the passage through Ellis Island."-School Library Journal

"The theme of immigration, long popular in children's literature, is captured here for young readers in one of the year's finest books."-The Boston Guide

In 1970, Riki became Art Director for Western Publishing Company's Education Division. Two years later, she moved to E.P. Dutton as Art Director for Children's Books and was later also Associate Publisher. She retired from full-time work at Dutton in 1991, continuing as a consultant on picture books until 1999. Riki wrote her first children's book, Watch the Stars Come Out, while still at Dutton.

As a child, Diane Goode loved books and art. She has been drawing ever since she can remember.Of Italian and French descent, she enjoyed the richness of both cultures and traveled to Europeevery summer visiting family as well as cathedrals and museums. She feels that these earlyimpressions helped shape her appreciation of art and life. She studied art history at QueensCollege, but switched to fine arts, in which she earned her degree.

Her love for Europe shows in the setting of many of her books Paris in particular, where two ofher recent picture books, Where's Our Mama? and Mama's PerfectPresent. take place. She drewon her experience of living for a short time in Pennsylvania, to do the art work for CynthiaRylant's story of Appalachia, When I Was Young in the Mountains, for which shewas awarded aCaldecott Honor Medal. Diane Goode has illustrated 27 books for children, including anthologiesand stories she has written herself. She has always been drawn to the classics and has illustratedmany of the traditional fairy tales. Of her process, she says:

"I always begin with a rough dummy and then work on the individual pages, sketching veryloosely and quickly to establish movement and composition. I do these dozens of times,repositioning enlarging, reducing, adding and omitting. There are always hundreds of sketches foreach book. It sounds tedious, but it is the most exciting part of creating a book. When I msatisfied with these, I do the final art. All of my work is done on opaline parchment, a thin butstrong paper. I sketch lightly in pencil and use water colors applied with very fine sable brushes.Sometimes I use color pencils with the paint to soften the atmosphere."

Diane Goode now lives in Watchung, New Jersey, with her husband David, an author and collegeprofessor. Their son, Peter, attends Rhode Island School of Design.
