A brilliant, perceptive and poignant 'appreciation' by Laura Amy Schlitz. It so beautifully captures the smart, wise, funny lady that Eva was. Thank you, Laura, and thank you Horn Book.

Yes, thank you, Laura. I reread MADENSKY SQUARE just last month, a week or so before hearing about Eva Ibbotson's death. And had reread THE MORNING GIFT a few months before that and THE STAR OF KAZAN a few months before that. If I spread out the books carefully, I always have at least one Ibbotson ready for rereading. Which reminds me that I haven't read THE DRAGONFLY POOL in a while. What magnificent books she's left us.
