About the Author

Clare Turlay Newberry (1903-1970) was born in Eugene, Oregon. She studied art at the University of Oregon, School of the Portland Art Museum, the California School of Fine Arts, and La Grand Chaumière in Paris, France. She received the Caldecott Honor for four of her books: T-Bone, The Baby Sitter (1951); Marshmallow (1943); April's Kittens (1941); and Barkis (1939).

In Ms. Newberry's own words, "Every word of marshmallow is true, even to the drawing of them wrapped in each other's arms. I know people find this hard to believe, but the bunny was so little and was so convinced that Oliver was his mother, what could Oliver do but be his mother the best way he could?"

In an interview my mother explained, "Every word about Oliver and Marshmallow is true, even to the drawing of them wrapped up in each other's paws. I know people find this hard to believe, but the bunny was so little and was so convinced that Oliver was his mother, what else could Oliver do? Anyway, we disproved the ancient belief that felines are always at sword's points with rodents, because this cat and bunny were the best of friends."
Adult readers who had MARSHMALLOW as children may be pleased to know that Smithmark used my mother's original cover artwork (which survived for 56 years, 30 in my closets) for this reissue. And my thanks to the many warm emails of those same grownups anxiously awaiting this new publication of MARSHMALLOW. Felicia Noelle Trujillo

This book has supposedly been reprinted from the original. I saw no indcation that this was abridged. However, I compared it to my older copy, and MANY of the wonderful descriptions have been left out. If you can find an older copyright, get it!

I am in my mid-fifties, and I consider my copy of Marshmallow to be one of my most treasured items. My first recollection as a child is that I especially loved the drawings and the poems. My present review is that I especially love the drawings, the poems, the descriptive vocabulary (you can almost hear the bunny go lippity, lippity around the apartment),and the simple nature teachings subtly worked into the story. I often mention the book to people who show any interest in rabbits, cats, or excellent books for children,

I love this book! Children are captivated by the simple familiar characters so clearly described. The story line is sweet and well written, NOT "dumbed down". There are lots of words on most pages and it takes more than a minute to read which is so helpful in developing attention span. My three year old was taken in completely! ( Not to mention my seven year old!)

Last year when my daughter was in kindergarten, she would check out an old, worn out copy of this book over and over again from the library at her school. I was surprised that with all the new, fancy, colorful books availabe, she kept going back to this one. Now she is in first grade and lo and behold, she's bringing it home again. On a whim I thought I'd check Amazon and see if it's available to buy, not thinking it would still be in print. I am so excited that it's for sale! I bought it and can't wait to present my little girl with her very own NEW Marshmallow book!

I have been looking for this book since my children were in elementary school, but it has been out of print. It is a perfect elementary "picture book", that makes you and the child cuddle and read it over and over.

When my Mother first wrote MARSHMALLOW, many people could not believe that an older bachelor cat (Oliver) would really adopt a baby bunny as his own, well, kitten. Because cats and rabbits were considered arch enemies, this story holds lessons for children on many levels, as well as featuring wonderful drawings from life of Oliver and his bunny, Marshmallow. Just as one of my Mom's verses reports: A bunny's a delightful habit, No home's complete without a rabbit.

"Marshmallow" is a classic. It was written in 1942 and it's still one of the best picture books ever put out for the first reader. I was absolutely enchanted by it when I read it a few years ago. Anyone who's ever had a cat and a rabbit in the same house will recognize the annoyed attitude of the feline as the bunny INSISTS on being the cat's friend (or the cat's baby!). I got it for one of my nieces; she loved it. The illustrations are simple and beautifully drawn, so they never became "dated", the way some old picture books did. If you have a little one anywhere from 4 to 6, this picture book is ideal for them, to read themselves or to be read to.
