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?"

Our story is just one of perseverance and experience. A story of hope and creativity.
Powerful themes that resonate with our own grant kids and their households. They're also exactly the exact elements that direct the charitable mission of the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) and this publication series.
The book author and illustrator team of Meg Cadts along with Samantha Fitch will be the nom de plume of this visionary partnership between the UHCCF ofﬁcers, volunteer staff, along with their partner creative agency. For your 1st book, “Meg Cadts” was made as a pen name for its dedicated original UHCCF team of authors and contributors - represented by taking the ﬁrst letter of each of the eight-person staff’s ﬁrst name. Samantha Fitch, is a build of the artists from Adventure Advertising who hand illustrated and painted the book.
In the weeks and months ahead, an increasing number of exciting articles will soon be inserted to Oliver & Hope’s Clubhouse online, such as a streaming or downloadable sound recording of Oliver & Hope’s Amusing Experience narrated by Julie Nelson, Emmy award-winning anchor with Minnesota’s largest NBC afﬁliate. Visit Oliver & Hope’s Clubhouse and Store in UHCCF.org for matches, downloadable activities and other fun things.
These books are so much greater than a great story to share with kids. They also provide the chance to help families overcome the struggles of a youngster’s medical condition. The sale of the books will give rise to prospective UHCCF medical grants. Since being set up in 1999, UHCCF has given more than 6,000 clinical grants, totaling around $18 million.
