Meg's Eggs (Meg and Mog)
About this deal
Although Thornton Burgess lived on the East Coast of the U.S., my kids and I always liked to imagine that the Oregon Coast Range is actually the Purple Hills and that we live there with Old Mother West Wind, where she begins and ends her day with her Merry Little Breezes. Some afternoons, if you look at the Coast Range from the Valley, you, too, may see the Purple Hills of the Oregon Coast Range. Helen Nicoll and Jan Pienkowski have worked together for over forty years, first at the BBC and then on the MEG and MOG books. Jan Pienkowski is a celebrated author of children's books, he has won the Greenaway Medal twice for his illustration of Joan Aiken's The Kingdom Under the Sea and Haunted House.
