I happened upon a really wonderful blog today called "Curious Pages" which features the most amazing children's books. Some of the books I remembered reading and some of them I had never seen before. They include some examples of the illustrations and a synopsis of the story - with some wry comments.

Wheeler and her mother ran an interior design firm and Dora Wheeler did some original textiles for the firm. This piece is featured in the Connections/Poetry by Jennette Mullaney. The Cleveland Museum of Art also has a wonderful portrait of Dora Wheeler, which features a textile (with fighting cats) behind her done by her teacher William Merritt Chase.
