“Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.”
Arnold Lobel


Author and Illustrator, Arnold Lobel won numerous awards for his simple and charming books.  Fables was the winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal in 1981.  His Frog and Toad books are beloved by children and adults alike and are shining examples of the fact that simple, "I can read" books can be charming, funny and touching even while using limited vocabulary.  His clever use of character and story and his wonderful illustrations have won him fans everywhere.  Share an Arnold Lobel story with someone special in your life!
