Little Bill Consulting the Caterpillar *Cotonnet, Aviateur and Cotonnet en Amérique.
Her earlier illustrations, while charming,
were simple and stood in stark contrast
to the hauntingly beautiful and whimsically
detailed illustrated work that was to follow.

black and white illustrations to
Alice au pays des merveilles

Haar vroegere illustraties, die charmant,
en eenvoudig waren staan in schril
contrast met haar geïllustreerd werk
wat daarop volgde.
In 1949 leverde Ségur een bijdrage aan
Alice au pays des Merveilles,
met kleur en zwart-wit illustraties
van de Franse aanpassing van
Carrolls "Alice in Wonderland - 
Het wordt beschouwd als haar meesterwerk.
De gekleurde illustraties, in het bijzonder.
De gehele Alice au pays des Merveilles,
tonen fantasie dieren en beelden die beschouwd
worden als het hoogtepunt van haar carrière.

My mother has two very old volumes of Alice and says I can inherit them but keeps forgetting to bring them to me. I have no idea who illustrated them. I have to ask her to look.

Wind in The Willows is my very favorite childrens book. 'Oh Toad!' I just love that book. Have you read the modern sequels? Thank you for your comment about my secret garden. I enjoyed letting a beloved book influence me. I need to share another favorite child's author whose books I am collecting very soon.

Groetjes ~
