Robert Lawson

Robert Lawson (1892-1957) had illustrated more than 30 children's books -- including the ever-popular Mr. Popper's Penguins -- before writing his first book, Ben and Me, the story of an ingenious mouse who inspires many of Benjamin Franklin's inventions. Lawson was awarded both the Newbery and Caldecott medals for his writing and illustrating.
