In the 1940s, Williams drew the illustrations for a new edition of the Little House series, following in the footsteps of the series’ original illustrators, Helen Sewell and Mildred Boyle.
In this book, the Wallaces trace the life of Williams and the strokes of his pencil, giving readers a rare taste of his family life and his experiences in the world of art and publishing. His experiences led him to cross paths with several influential figures of the 20th century and brought him to numerous locations around the globe. . Each of these things helped shape him into the man whose drawings we still admire today in books such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and the Little House series.
