About the Author

Brinton Turkle was born in Ohio in 1915. He worked most of his life in New Mexico and New York writing books for children and illustrating 82 of them. He had an ambition to write and illustrate three children's books so he could dedicate them to each of his three children. In 1970 he was awarded the prestigious Caldecott Honor for his book Thy Friend, Obadiah.

The Obadiah books reflect the beauty and simplicity of his Quaker beliefs, which he expressed this way: In writing, I use all sorts of tricks to capture the attention of my young audience: suspense, humor and even charm, when I can muster it. But no matter how successfully I may entertain, I am really up to something else: subversion. My abilities are implacably lined up against the hypocrisy, materialism, and brutality that so pervade our society. As my readers leave childhood behind, I hope that they will carry with them an appreciation for such alternatives as integrity, mutual respect, kindness, and reverence for life. These alternatives are in my books, and I pray that exposure to them will play a part in the construction of a better tomorrow.
