Biographical Sketch

Louis Slobodkin was born February 19, 1903, in Albany, New York. He attended the Beaux Arts Institute for Design in New York City from 1918-1922, and in 1927 married Florence Gersh, who would be his collaborator on several children's books. Early in his career Slobodkin worked as a sculptor and designer, and in 1943 illustrated James Thurber's Many Moons , which received the 1944 Caldecott Medal. Throughout his long and prolific career, Slobodkin illustrated his and other author's works. He is well-known for his illustrations of Eleanor Estes' Moffat books. During the 1940s-1970s he wrote a number of books for young children, including a Read About series, and such humorous 'didactic' books as Thank You--You're Welcome , that taught young readers about manners and courtesy with humor and style. He also wrote and illustrated a number of science fiction stories for older readers, including his Space Ship series. Critics have long praised his illustrations for their simplicity, and for his ability to show movement, tension, and the dynamics of human figures, to help move a story along and depict mood and place. Louis Slobodkin died May 8, 1975, in Florida. Biographical Sources: Something About the Author, vols. 1, 26
