Houghton Mifflin Children's Books now publishes more than one hundred titles each year, and we are frequently lauded for the depth of our backlist and recognized for encouraging and cultivating new talent. Our list consists of some of the most recognized creators in the field of children's literature, including H. A. and Margret Rey, Caldecott medalist Virginia Lee Burton, Bill Peet, Holling C. Holling, Newbery medalist Elizabeth George Speare, Newbery medalist Scott O'Dell, James Marshall, Caldecott medalist Chris Van Allsburg, and many other award-winning authors and illustrators.
