Marc Simont, 1915-2013

I read today of the passing of children’s book illustrator Marc Simont, who died on Saturday, July 13, 2013 at the age of 97. Mr. Simont was a gifted artist, an adept story teller and a kind and gentle man; I was fortunate enough to have met him during my time at Books of Wonder.

So far, he is the most reviewed person on TurtleAndRobot.com with four full reviews. Additionaly, his book The Happy Day was mentioned in both 15 Favorite Picture Books about Spring and Top 20 (plus one) Books About Snow. I adore his work. The worldof art, of children’s books, as a wholeis a better place for having had him in it.
