Tasha Tudor (1915-2008), the noted illustrator and watercolorist, created and painted her first two books by the time she was 19.

Tasha Tudor's first published book, Pumpkin Moonshine, was a little book, small enough to fit in a child's pocket. Pumpkin Moonshine was the first of nearly 100 books Tasha would illustrate. Biographical details and depictions of her family life appear throughout her books.

Tasha Tudor's work has appealed to a world-wide audience. She presents a nostalgic picture of 19th century New England farm life. Her characters are appropriately dressed for the period. The models often came from Tudor's renowned collection of 19th century costumes; that collection resides in part at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Tudor's fans appreciate her many intricate borders. Dolls, birds and corgi dogs are frequent motifs. Tudor also used authentic detail of flowers and antiques throughout her art.

Tasha Tudor garnered Caldecott Honor Awards, first for Mother Goose in 1944.
