Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Mary Coyle Chase (1907–1981) was born in Denver, Colorado, and lived there all her life. She worked for various Denver papers as a journalist, began to write plays, and in 1944 had a huge success with Harvey, which won the Pulitzer Prize and was later made into a movie starring Jimmy Stewart.

Harold Berson (1926–1986) was born in Los Angeles and studied art in Paris. Loretta Mason Potts, originally published in 1958, was the first book he illustrated, but he would go on to draw pictures for more than ninety books, including many that he also wrote. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Review

"[A] fresh edition of the charmingly arch 1958 novel by Mary Chase..." —Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal 

“The poignancy of Peter Pan lingers over this fantasy, but it has its own special charm, the charm of unabashed fancy and resounding good sense, which made the author’s Harvey a favorite of adult audiences.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Surely, Loretta Mason Potts will take her place among the memorable characters of children's literature and her story should be a favorite for a long time to come." —Chicago Daily Tribune --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
