Inhaltsangabe: Exhibition catalog from "Those Telling Lines: The Art of Virginia Lee Burton" at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, March 24 - June 21, 2009 From "A Centenary Tribute" by Barbara Elleman, Guest Curator "On this centenary of her birth, Burton's techniques and style have earned her a secure place in children's literature. 'Those telling lines' she created still bring alive a sturdy steam shovel, a snowplow called to duty, a cable car ready to take on the steepest street, a legendary archer prepared to do battle, and a little house happy again in a hillside full of flowers. Together they personify the joy and love of life that were so much a part of Virginia Lee Burton and which she has given so abundantly to children through her books."
Über den Autor: Barbara Elleman served as editor of the Children's section of Booklist magazine and then as founder and editor-in-chief of Book Links: Connecting Books, Libraries, and Classrooms, both published by the American Library Association. Following her retirement from ALA, she was named Distinguished Scholar of Children's Literature at Marquette University. Earlier in her career she worked as a school library media specialist in high schools, junior highs, elementary schools, and served as a children's librarian in the Denver Public Library. Barbara has been a judge for the Caldecott Medal, the Boston Globe/Horn Book Awards, the Golden Kite Awards, and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which was given to Eric Carle. She participated in the National Council of Teachers of English Excellence in Poetry committee, the U.S. Hans Christian Andersen committee. Barbara currently serves on the national advisory board for the Mazza Museum for International Art from Picture Books and is a trustee of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Her awards include the Jeremiah Ludington Award presented by the Educational Paperback Association and the Hope S. Dean Award given by the Foundation for Children's Literature. In 1999, Putnam published her first book, Tomie dePaola, His Art and His Stories. Since then she has written Holiday House: The First Sixty-Five Years (Holiday House), and Virginia Lee Burton: A Life in Art (Houghton). In 2004, her profile of Steven Kellogg appeared in a collection of Kellogg books entitled, Pinkerton and Friends (Dial).
