Twain Story Discovered

10 MINS

Historical figures can sometimes be larger than life. But, they led real lives as well – like something as simple as telling their children a bedtime story. Today, Rachel visits with children’s book author, Philip Stead, who along with his illustrator wife Erin brought to life a bedtime story that Mark Twain made up for his daughters. It was never published in his lifetime. Stead shares the backstory – of the recent discovery of the manuscript and he and his wife being sought out to re-purpose and expand the story that is entitled The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine. Philip and Erin Steed are also the author and illustrator of the Caldecott-winning A Sick Day for Amos McGee, as well as Bear Has a Story to Tell and Lenny & Lucy. The Steeds live in northern Michigan.
