Who Is the Artist?

This is another piece of art work done by a famous author and illustrator of children's books. Can you guess who it is?

Fish Story is a linoleum block print on fabric, done in 1957. If you think you need a better look, click on the photo for a larger view.

Update: Island Sparrow was the only one brave enough to venture a guess, and she was right. The mystery artist is Virginia Lee Burton--you know, author illustrator of such beloved children's books as Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, The Little House, and more. I'll do a short biographical sketch of Virginia Demetrios (she published her children's books under her maiden name) with more pictures, too, when I have time to put it all together.
