Did you know that many famous authors of adult literature, also created beautiful children’s books . . .

This wonderful and detailed article from Brainpickings  highlights one in particular, Joey and the Birthday Present by Anne Sexton. The article also gives a nod to other unexpected children’s authors, such as James Joyce (ok, weird?), Sylvia Plath, Virginia Woolf, and others.
