I have been a fan of Sarah S. Stilwell's for years. I think her work did not survive because it appeared in readers and was loved (to distruction) by her young readers. Thank you so much for compiling this thoughtful appreciation of her work. Could you tell me what edition of "The Water Babies" has her illustrations?


I've been researching Sarah Stillwell, and I have only found a few sites mentioning her so far - yours is the best!
If anyone knows more about Stillwell or can direct me to other links on her work, I would greatly appreciate it.
Isn't she marvelous?


I can be emailed about Stillwell's art via this site:
