The World of Hilary Knight

While Mr. Knight is best known for his illustrations of the feisty girl-child Eloise, he decorated my own readings of Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. Only when I grew up did I realize they were drawn by the same person, and that that person was a man. Whether Hilary Knight is drawing the cures for naughtiness prescribed by the magical Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle or drawing the incorrigible Eloise, his distinct style shows childhood as we all remember it; whimsical, magical, and messy.
