Friends by Jeannine Atkins from Views from a Window Seat. Peek: "We called her Peg or Peggy, but on her book jackets she was Marguerite W. Davol. I love the language in her picture books such as Batwings and the Curtain of Night, the joy of The Paper Dragon, and Black White, Just Right, a sort of love letter to her grandchildren."
Remembering Our Peg from Jo Knowles. Peek: "I know that if you met Peg or have read any of her beautiful books, you are well aware of that sparkle you see in all of these photos. Of that joy. Of that giving soul who simply loved. Loved life, and everyone and everything in it."
