Über den Autor:
Doris Orgel was born in 1929 in Vienna, Austria. To escape the rise of the Nazi party in Austria, her family fled to Yugoslavia and finally to New York. She attended Radcliffe College from 1946 to 1948 and graduated cum laude in 1950 from Barnard College. Prior to 1955, Ms. Orgel worked in magazine and book publishing. Since that time she has written and translated several fairy and folk tales, as well as served as a translator for other authors. Her first original book, Sarah?s Room (1963) was published under the pseudonym Doris Adelberg. It was also republished in England and in Switzerland in German. In 1960, Ms. Orgel received the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for her translation of Willhelm Hauff's Dwarf Long-Nose (1960). She also worked as a children?s book reviewer for "The New York Times".
In addition to Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak's books include Kenny's Window, Very Far Away, The Sign on Rosie's Door, Nutshell Library (consisting of Chicken Soup with Rice, Alligators All Around, One Was Johnny, and Pierre), Higglety Pigglety Pop! or There Must Be More to Life, In the Night Kitchen, Outside Over There, We Are All in the Dumps with Jack and Guy, and Bumble-Ardy.
He received the 1964 Caldecott Medal for Where the Wild Things Are; the 1970 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration; the 1983 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, given by the American Library Association in recognition of his entire body of work; and a 1996 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution to the arts in America. In 2003, he received the first Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, an international prize for children's literature established by the Swedish government.
