Virginia Lee Burton was one of the most significant and groundbreaking author/illustrators of the 20th Century. For over sixty years, her classic picture books have delighted children with their engaging stories and lively illustrations. This finely wrought documentary explores Burton's life and art through a treasure-trove of archival materials, never-before-seen photographs, personal documents, sketchbooks, original manuscripts and interviews with family and friends. Lindsay Crouse narrates this richly textured portrait.
