Caldecott Honor Award (Many Moons)

According to one American critic in the 50s, he was "the greatest and most original humorist this country has produced."

When he wrote short stories, James Thurber would set his alarm clock for forty-five minutes so that he knew when to stop writing. Even though the first draft was written quickly, Thurber's work was typically polished through 8-15 rewrites. He said, "I don't know why … the first or second draft of everything I write reads as if it was turned out by a charwoman." [http://www.ohioreadingroadtrip.org/literary/factoids.html]  -30-
