IN THE GREAT GREEN ROOM The Brilliant and Bold Life of Margaret Wise Brown

by | Read by Bernadette Dunne

Biography & Memoir • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Bernadette Dunne offers a warm and even-tempered narration of this biography of the surprising woman who gave the world GOODNIGHT MOON and many other children's books. Dunne's calm rendition is rather at odds with the tempestuous personality of Margaret Wise Brown, but given the complications of her short, emotion-filled life, it's probably a good vocal choice. Relying on a treasure trove of unpublished writing, as well as interviews and extensive reading of Wise Brown's work, author Amy Gary demonstrates how much Wise Brown helped change the look, sound, and subject matter of children's books. Between them, Gary and Dunne offer an intriguing portrait of the woman who helped millions of children through their early years. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
