Riassunto: Eighteen poems about witches by L. Frank Baum, e.e. cummings, Eleanor Farjeon, and others.
Daisy Wallace is a pseudonym for writer and editor Margery Cuyler. She was already an experienced editor of children's books for the publishing firm of Holiday House when she decided to try her hand at writing. While she once admitted that her passion has been for editing children's books, she has come to love writing as well, "'since it exercises my imagination in a more personal and introspective fashion."' In addition to authoring a wide range of both nonfiction and fiction picture books, including Freckles and Willie, Fat Santa, Skeleton Hiccups, and Daisy's Crazy Thanksgiving, Cuyler has written several popular chapter books for more talented readers. Born in Princeton, New Jersey, Cuyler was raised in a large family and grew up in the oldest house in town. Competing with four siblings and an equal number of cousins who had joined Cuyler's family after their own mother died, she learned early how to fend for herself. After graduating from high school, she attended Sarah Lawrence College, earning her bachelor's degree in 1970. From there, it was a quick move to Boston to work for Atlantic Monthly Press before Cuyler returned to New York City and found a job with Holiday House. "'I'm a great supporter of the type of small institution that allows the creative spirit to flourish,"' "'For example, both Sarah Lawrence and Holiday House value independent thinking, and provide the kind of nourishing environment where new ideas can take seed and ripen naturally."' Cuyler found Holiday House to be the perfect fit with her own career aspirations' beginning there in 1974, she served as its editor-in-chief for children's fiction for many years before expanding her career opportunities at other publishers, among them Henry Holt, Golden Books, and Winslow Press. Although her earliest books were nonfiction, Cuyler has penned a number of entertaining picture books for pre-schoolers and children in the early grades. Cuyler's first novel, The Trouble with Soap, was written after she attended a writer's conference in her capacity as editor. "'I sat around for two weeks listening to people read their stuff,"' she told interviewer Roginski. "'Then I started writing."' The Trouble with Soap is based on its author's own experiences as a not-so-model child.
