MARGARET WISE BROWN (1910–1952), best known as the author of Goodnight Moon, wrote countless children’s books, inspired by her belief that the very young were fascinated by the simple pleasures of the world around them. Among her many bestselling Golden titles are The Sailor Dog, The Color Kittens, Mister Dog, Seven Little Postmen, and Home for a Bunny.
JANE WERNER WATSON[DDM1]  edited the first twelve Little Golden Books, which launched in 1942. She went on to write and edit scores of Golden Books, including the bestselling Little Golden Books Wonders of Nature and My Little Golden Book About God.
GARTH WILLIAMS (1912–1996) is known for his realistic yet highly expressive animal characters. He brought to life some of the best-loved children’s books of the 20th century, including E. B. White’s Charlotte’s Web and Stuart Little, and the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Williams illustrated many timeless Golden Books, including Baby Farm Animals, Mister Dog, The Friendly Book, The Sailor Dog, The Giant Golden Book of Elves and Fairies, and The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse.
