Margaret Mahy, Children’s Author, New Zealand. "Ms. Mahy wrote more than 150 books, including illustrated stories for small children like “A Lion in the Meadow” (1969), “Beaten by a Balloon” (1998) and the best-selling “Bubble Trouble” (2009), as well as young-adult novels, including “The Haunting” (1982). ... Ms. Mahy’s stories often tapped what she called the “surprises lurking in the heart of everything.” Her own life did, too." Died July 2012. Will be sadly missed.
