Beloved childrenâs book author Margaret Wise Brown died in 1952, but she has a new work coming out in May.
Little Golden Books will publish âMargaret Wise Brownâs Manners,â a book that uses cute critters to demonstrate good manners.
âThere is a way to talk when others are talking,â reads one page by the author of âGoodnight Moon,â âand a way to listen when others are talking.â
In 1990, biographer Amy Gary, who wrote âIn the Great Green Room: The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown,â discovered a trunk full of unpublished manuscripts in Brownâs sisterâs barn.
âMargaret was able to see the world through the lens of a child in a poetic, sly way,â said Diane Muldrow, Golden Booksâ editorial director.
