THE LULLABY SONGBOOK
Jane Yolen is a literary all-rounder. From Nebula-winning SF short stories to historical fiction to cookbooks to poetry, Yolen has found success and accolades. Picture books are no exception: among her numerous works in the genre are two Caldecott Medal winners, beautiful collaborations with some of the most pre-eminent illustrators, and beloved bedtime story staples. In 2021, at age 83, she published her 400th book, and showed no signs of slowing down – "[m]y eye is on 500!" she gleefully reported, discussing her ongoing projects (Scalzi).
