  • Marc Simont (November 23, 1915 - July 13, 2013) was a Paris-born American artist, political cartoonist, and illustrator of more than a hundred children's books. Inspired by his father, Spanish painter Joseph Simont, he began drawing at an early age. Simont settled in New York City in 1935 after encouragement from his father, attended the New York National School of Design, and served three years in the military. Simont's first illustrated children's book was published in 1939. He won the 1957 Caldecott Medal for U.S. children's book illustration, recognizing A Tree Is Nice by Janice May Udry, and he was a runner-up both in 1950 (The Happy Day by Ruth Krauss) and in 2002 (The Stray Dog: from a true story by Reiko Sassa retold by Simont). He also illustrated The 13 Clocks, recruited by the writer James Thurber (1950); In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson by Bette Lord (1984); Glaciers by Wendell Tangborn (1988); Top Secret by John Reynolds Gardiner (1995); My Brother, Ant by Betsy Byars (1996); and The Beautiful Planet: ours to lose, which he also wrote (2010)
