Biography for Once a Mouse
Simon and Schuster
Marcia Brown has twice won the Caldecott Medal (for Cinderella and Once a Mouse...) and six of her books have been Caldecott Honor books. Many have been selected by the American Library Association as notable books of the year and by the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the New York Society of Illustrators for excellence in design and illustration. Personal interests in music, ballet, painting, and travel have enhanced the natural gifts of feeling and interpretation she has brought to each of her books.
