William Steig (1907-2003) was a cartoonist, illustrator and author of award-winning books for children, including Shrek!, on which the DreamWorks movies are based. Steig was born in New York City. Every member of his family was involved in the arts, and so it was no surprise when he decided to become an artist. He attended City College and the National Academy of Design. In 1930, Steig's work began appearing in The New Yorker, where his drawings have been a popular fixture ever since. He published his first children's book, Roland the Minstrel Pig, in 1968.
In 1970, Steig received the Caldecott Medal for Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. His books for children also include Dominic; The Real Thief; The Amazing Bone, a Caldecott Honor Book; Amos & Boris, a National Book Award finalist; and Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, both Newbery Honor Books. Steig's books have also received the Christopher Award, the Irma Simonton Black Award, the William Allen White Children's Book Award, and the American Book Award. His European awards include the Premio di Letteratura per l'infanzia (Italy), the Silver Pencil Award (the Netherlands), and the Prix de la Fondation de France. On the basis of his entire body of work, Steig was selected as the 1982 U.S. candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and subsequently as the 1988 U.S. candidate for Writing.
Stieg also published thirteen collections of drawings for adults, beginning with About People in 1939, and including The Lonely Ones, Male/Female, The Agony in the Kindergarten, and Our Miserable Life.
He died in Boston at the age of 95.From AudioFile:
[Editor's Note: The following is a combined review with OWEN and SE VENDEN GORRAS (CAPS FOR SALE).]--These Spanish translations of well-loved children's books come complete with superbly produced audio counterparts. All the stories offer appropriate background music with animated, ear-catching narrators, who will add to any child's listening and reading pleasure, in addition to providing excellent language instruction for younger learners. In IRENE, LA VALIENTE (BRAVE IRENE) a raging snowstorm offers many challenges to young Irene as she seeks to deliver a ball gown that her mother has just finished for the duchess. Susan Rybin offers this translation with zest, clarity, and a light-hearted, child-like quality. Her diction is precise and moderately paced so that the Spanish learner or native speaker can follow with ease. Music and sound effects punctuate this charming performance. In SE VENDEN GORRAS (CAPS FOR SALE) an itinerant cap vendor wakes up from a nap to find his pile of caps has disappeared from his head onto the heads of numerous monkeys chattering from the tree above. This Reading Rainbow classic features music throughout, with an enthusiastic performance by Angel Pineda. His pacing and attention to detail are impeccable, including a superb rendition of an echoing voice moving down a hillside as the cap seller continues on his way. The story of OWEN asks how Owen's parents will help him relinquish his beloved blanket and silence Mrs. Tweezers's constant chiding. This delightful tale unfolds with playful background music and sound effects that underscore perfectly the many distinct voices created by narrator Blanca Camacho. Her tone of voice is especially well suited to the very young listener/reader. Each Live Oak Media and Weston Woods Studio production includes a cassette with the entire story on each side. Side One comes with instructions and page-turning signals; Side Two has no signals. The Weston Woods cassettes are accompanied by durable hardback books while the Live Oak's package includes high-quality paperbacks. Children, parents, and teachers alike will treasure these enchanting read-alongs. J.J.F. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
