This rollicking rhyme tells the story of a very important house—the house that Jack built—around which wacky things happen to animals and people alike! It’s a shining example of how one event can spawn a whole series of mishaps. Best of all, it’s fun to read aloud!
About the Author
J. P. Miller (1913-2001) illustrated many Golden Book titles from the 1940s through the 1970s, some written by Margaret Wise Brown and Edith Kunhardt. Before becoming a children's book illustrator, Miller had worked in the Walt Disney Studio's elite character modeling department, creating characters (such as the dwarf Dopey) for Disney's first feature film, Snow White. He later designed the character of the toy maker Gepetto for Pinocchio.
