Robert McCloskey (1914-2001) was one of America's greatest illustrators. His children's books won multiple Caldecott awards and honors, and his style helped define midcentury American art. A native of Maine, his books showcased his vibrant New England home, and they are perfect reads for the transition between summer and autumn.
