But... what many people don't know, is that before he became known as one of the greatest children's authors of all time... he was actually an advertising illustrator! This week, I'd like to share with you some of the work he did for Flit Insecticide. This series was produced in 1935, two years before he published his first children's book. It's very interesting to see how his advertising style influenced his artwork in his books.
