Love, children's books, and the FBI




Hey, it’s Valentine’s Day! What better way to celebrate than with a book on CROCKETT JOHNSON AND RUTH KRAUSS, the creative couple behind classic children’s works such as THE CARROT SEED and HOW TO MAKE AN EARTHQUAKE. Although Johnson is better known for his solo work HAROLD AND THE PURPLE CRAYON and his BARNABY strip, the duo actually did a lot of collaborative work together and had quite the interesting life. Did you know that they were actually under FBI investigation for years due to their political beliefs during the McCarthy era. Crazy right?! Also crazy: the cover is designed by none other than the masterful Chris Ware!
