Abstract/Description: "One of the authors who has written many good books for children is Marguerite Henry. Her stories, particularly her horse stories, are very popular with young readers, and the exceptionally fine quality of her work has been recognized and honored time after time by adult authorities. The most distinguished award in the field of children's literature, the Newbery Medal, was won by her inimitable King of the Wind. Several of her works have been translated into foreign languages, published in Braille, and made into movie scripts. Mrs. Henry was chosen as the subject of this paper because of her importance as an author of children's books. Although she has been a prolific writer in several different fields, she is best known for her contributions to children's literature and only this phase of her work will be considered here. It is hoped that a bio-bibliography of Marguerite Henry may prove of some value to others in addition to being an educational experience for the writer. The study is intended to give a biographical account of the subject, to examine her books for children, and to determine her place in the literary world as evidenced by the critical opinion and reception given her work"--Introduction.
