We'll Miss You

This year, on Valentines Day, the world of children's literature said goodbye to a true force in the publishing industry. Margaret K. McElderry died at the age of 98, leaving behind a legacy of tales that will inspire generations to come. Click here to read more. For those of you trying to place who Margaret McEderry is, you may be familiar with "The Borrowers," "We're Going on a Bear Hunt," "The Dark is Rising," or even Margaret K. McElderry Books, a children's book imprint from Simon & Schuster. It was the first such imprint to carry an editor's name and is still in operation today.
