Author and illustrator Joan Walsh Anglund (1926 - ) has sold more than 45 million copies of her inspirational books (which number close to 100), making her arguably one of the most successful writers in the world. She is perhaps best known for penning stories of love, spirituality and friendship and for her illustrations of round-faced, featureless children. Her drawings have also inspired lines of greeting cards, figurines, and other merchandise.
Born Joan Walsh on January 3, 1926 in Hinsdale, Illinois, she was the second daughter of commercial artist Thomas F. Walsh and his painter wife, the former Mildred Pfeifer. Raised in the suburbs near Chicago, young Joan was encouraged by her parents and began to draw at an early age. She attended both the Chicago Art Institute and the American Academy of Art before becoming an apprentice with commercial artist Adele Roth.
Following her 1947 marriage to Robert Anglund and the birth of her two children, she relocated to New York City, a place she found isolating and lonely at first. When her husband discovered some notes she had made, he encouraged her to create her own children’s book. Anglund not only wrote but also illustrated A Friend Is Someone Who Likes You (Harcourt, 1958), including her now famous drawings of children without noses and mouths. She has stated in interviews that while it was not a conscious decision to create these figures, “I think perhaps I am trying to get down to the essence of a child--not drawing just a particular, realistic child, but instead I think I'm trying to capture the 'feeling' of all children--of Childhood itself, perhaps.” The book, which was rejected by several publishers, eventually sold over four million copies and has been translated into several languages. Since her initial success, Anglund has written and illustrated more than 90 children’s books, including the classic The Brave Cowboy (Harcourt, 1959), Childhood Is a Time of Innocence(Harcourt, 1964), Emily and Adam(Random House, 1979), Memories of the Heart(Random House, 1984), Peace Is a Circle of Love(Harcourt, 1994), and Babies Are a Bit of Heaven(Simon & Schuster, 2002), to name but a few. Her illustrations and inspirational quotations decorate a line of greeting cards, and her work has also served as the model for dolls and figurines.
"What need we touch a child— with our books and rules? Let him walk among the hills and flowers, Let him gaze upon the waters, Let him look up to the stars— And he will have wisdom."
Author and illustrator Joan Walsh Anglund, born on January 3, is best known for her round-faced, featureless characters and her inspirational messages, inspired largely from her own children, Joy and Todd. Her characters grace figurines, hand-made plaques, notecards, cross stitch patterns and ornaments. Her publishing success began with her first book, A Friend is Someone Who Likes You in 1958. During her lifetime she has written and illustrated over 75 children's books, selling over 40 million copies world wide. Perhaps you recognize her from a quarterly piece in Good Housekeeping or other titles like In A Pumpkin Shell (1960) or The Brave Cowboy (1959)? Regardless of how you know her, Joan Walsh Anglund has become a part of American culture and her words touch the hearts of children across generations. "Praise, like sunlight," she writes, "helps all things grow."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
(1926-) Joan Walsh Anglund became successful with her first book, A Friend Is Someone Who Likes You, in 1958. She's been making books featuring these same round-faced mouthless characters ever since, and her popularity continues to grow. There's something ineffably sweet about her creations, which are based in large part on people and places in her own life-- particularly on her children Joy and Todd.
LOGANBERRY LEGACY JWA is a perennial favorite here and a popular choice for gift books. She seems to strike a nerve and her images of childhood have an innocence and purity that people respond to with a rush of nostalgia. Older copies of her books are usually preferred by those who want their nostalgia to be real, right down to the feel the book, and the out-of-print Brave Cowboy is perhaps the most sought-after title here. I usually have several used books in the Friend series (if you can call them a series), and of course I can order new copies anything still in print. I also have several framed prints and a doll of hers available for sale. Please inquire. * Newsflash! The Brave Cowboy is at last back in print! *
