Clare Turlay Newberry

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

In Ms. Newberry's own words, "Every phrase of marshmallow is correct, also to the drawing of those wrapped in each other's arms. I know people find this difficult to believe, but the rabbit was so modest and was really confident that Oliver was his mom, what could Oliver do but be his mother the best way he could?"
