Author Biography - Gertrude Crampton

GERTRUDE CRAMPTON (1909-1996) was a teacher and a textbook editor before she wrote two of the bestselling Little Golden Books of all time: Tootle and Scuffy the Tugboat. Born in New York City, she graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. TIBOR GERGELY (1900-1978) brought to life two of the most popular Little Golden Book characters, beloved by generations: Scuffy the Tugboat and Tootle. Born in Budapest, Hungary, he received his only formal art schooling in Vienna, at age 20. Gergely designed stage sets and marionettes, and worked an illustrator and cartoonist for central European newspapers. During this time he also painted murals and exhibited his paintings in Europe. In 1939, Gergely rolled up his canvases and immigrated to the United States, settling in New York. His long association with Golden Books began in 1942--the year of their launch--and continued as long as he lived. In 1955, Gergely received a Caldecott Honor for Wheel on the Chimney, written by Margaret Wise Brown and published by Lippincott. Gergely illustrated more than 70 Golden Books including The Great Big Fire Engine Book, The Taxi That Hurried, Daddies, The Merry Shipwreck, Seven Little Postmen, The Happy Man and His Dump Truck, Animal Orchestra, and Animal Gym.
