About Author

Edith Ballinger Price

Edith Ballinger Price (1897-1997) was a prolific children's book author and illustrator, well known for her innovative writings and pictures for 37 different books and stories. Price, the granddaughter of landscape painter William Trost Richards, who originally inspired her to draw, attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, as well as the New York Art Students League and the National Academy of Design. She was a frequent contributor to both general-interest journals like Colliers and children's periodicals like St. Nicholas Magazine. She was also a key originator of the Brownies, the junior equivalent of the Girl Scouts. Price's published works include her first novel, Blue Magic (1919), the Bottle Man (1920), Silver Shoal Light, The Happy Venture (1920), and My Lady Lee (1925). She also worked with several authors, notably Margaret C. Getchell, on the 1916 book Cloudbird, which follows the dream-like experiences of a little girl named Dorothy Ann and the animals she encounters. Price's design and illustration appeared in traditional locations at the beginning and end of chapters, as well as in more unexpected places where, depending on the content, small silhouettes of bears, roosters, herons, turtles, and other creatures jumped into small spaces within the text.
