Description: The author of these much-quoted lines is William Blake, who painted and wrote his marvelous books nearly two hundred years ago. Inspired by Blake's work, Nancy Willard has written a book of magical poems about life at an imaginary inn, run by none other than William Blake himself. The inn is staffed by two mighty dragons that brew and bake, two angels that wash and shake the featherbeds, and a rabbit who shows visitors to their rooms. Among the remarkable guests are the Man in the Marmalade Hat, the King of Cats who writes his wife not to "grow fat like a common kitchen cat," and two sunflowers who demand a room with a view. The flawlessly crafted illustrations by Alice and Martin Provensen reflect their deep love for William Blake and the London in which he lived. Together, text and illustrations combine to create a once-in-a-lifetime book that will be cherished by readers of all ages.

Alice Provensen was born on August 14th, 1918 in Chicago, Illinois. Provensen attended the University of California. After college, she worked with Walter Lantz Studio, the creators of Woody Woodpecker. It was here where she met her future husband, Martin Provensen, as he was assigned to Walter Lantz Studio while creating training films for the American military. In 1944, Alice and Martin married. They relocated to Washington DC and later to New York City. In New York, they found their first illustrating job. They became known as an author-illustrator picture book team, creating many award-winning picture books including the 1984 Caldecott Medal book: A Glorious Flight: Across the Channel with Louis Bleriot. They continued to write together at Maple Hill Farms in New York where they raised their daughter. They wrote about their simple life and animal friends in: A Year at Maple Hill Farm. Martin Provensen died of a heart attack in 1987. Alice Provensen's inquisitive nature and passion for research led her to continue writing. Her first publication after her husband's death was The Buck Stops Here: The Presidents of the United States.
