THE IMPORTANT THING ABOUT MARGARET WISE BROWN is a biography about the famous author who brought us so many great books. This picture book is longer than the average one at 42 pages. It's also more than your average biography.

After reading it, I realized Margaret Wise Brown was strange and had a hard time getting her books into places like the library. Her strangeness is what makes her unique and Mac Barnett does an amazing job at creating a biography that's also inspiring. I learned things I had no clue about and it gave me insight to what possibly inspired her books.

It not only focuses on what an amazing woman Margaret Wise Brown. It also teaches the importance of accepting the strange things in life and that not everyone likes the same things. Just because you think something is odd, doesn't mean that it's wrong. It's inspiring and an incredible tribute to an amazing author who fought against the norm.

Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of Margaret Wise Brown books, those who need some inspiration, and those who aren't afraid of what makes people different.
