Biographical Sketch
Eleanor Estes was born on May 9, 1906 in New Haven, Connecticut. She was a children's librarian at the Free Public Library in New Haven and later at the New York Public Library, while she attended the Pratt Institute Library School. Her first book, The Moffats (1941) was written after she left the library and went to work as a writer full-time. Three of her books were chosen as Newbery Honor Books from 1943 to 1945, The Middle Moffet (1942), Rufus M. (1943), and The Hundred Dresses (1944). In 1952, her Ginger Pye (1951) was given the Newbery Medal. Many of her books were illustrated by famous illustrators including Louis Slobodkin, Edward Ardizzone, and Susanne Suba. At her death in 1988, Ms. Estes had written 19 children's books and one adult novel.
