First published between 1936 and 1977, Edward Ardizzone's classic Little Tim books have been loved by generations of children for their spirited adventures and totally matter-of-fact tellings by a storyteller who spoke straight to children's imaginations. As Maurice Sendak has said, "The opening lines of the very first story were a droll Ishmaellike call to adventure that gave great promise of wonderful things to come."

During the course of his fifty-year career, Ardizzone wrote and illustrated about twenty books for children and edited and illustrated two volumes of classic fairy tales. He also wrote five books for adults and illustrated more than 150 books for other authors, including many of the classics by Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, Dylan Thomas and others. One of his best known paintings, Magic Carpet, was chosen by UNICEF for a collection of international Christmas cards.
