Abstract/Description: "In spite of being noted for their materialism, Americans have advanced further than any other country in both stimulating and satisfying children's curiosity and respecting their individuality by providing them with inviting libraries overflowing with good literature. In accomplishing this the United States has fostered the work of many foreign writers and artists, who have blended their own heritage and culture with modern American life. Among these foreign born author-artists of children's books is Kate Seredy, whose creative work in such books as The Good Master and The White Stag gives her a rightful place among the outstanding artists of this age. The purpose of this paper is to show how her early Hungarian life and her later absorption into American society influenced her stories and pictures to contribute to the vast wealth of children's books. This will be done by a brief biography of her life and a discussion of her works"--Introduction.
