Fans of illustrator Mary Blair will cherish this never-before-published treasury of her Golden Books, which includes material that hasn't been in print in decades. I Can Fly is here in its unabridged glory, as are Baby's House, The Up and Down Book, and The Golden Book of Little Verses. Many of the finest pages from The New Golden Song Book are included, to round out this gorgeous collection. All of the original artwork has been digitally reproduced, and has never looked more breathtaking!

Academy Award-winning animator John Canemaker—author of The Art and Flair of Mary Blair—wrote the foreword for this highly anticipated book honoring one of the most beloved illustrators of our time.

Editor reviews

For fans of Mary Blair, this treasury is a no brainer. But for those who may not have heard of her or seen her work, it's still a no brainer!

This treasury is a beautiful collection of nursery songs, cradle songs, hymns, folk songs (complete with sheet music and lyrics), and even a few stories with Mary Blair's illustrations. It reminds me of the nursery rhyme book I treasured as a child. Spanning the years 1950 to 1964, each page is a vintage leap back to another time. Mary Blair's whimsical artwork lends a colorful, crisp, and airy feel to the collection. I have no doubt little ones will enjoy reading from this book night after night.
