The Cricket in Times Square, by George Selden and illustrated by Garth Williams. I love all of Garth Williams illustrations, he did Charlotte's Web, the Frances books, and Margery Sharpe's Miss Bianca.
White's Charlotte's Web is one of the most beloved children's books of the century, and the reason for its enduring appeal lies as much in Garth Williams' iconic illustrations as it does in the genuinely heartwarming nature of its narrative.
From The Tall Book of Make Believe Selected by Jane Werner Pictures by Garth Williams Copyright 1950 I Love Garth Williams! He illustrated a lot of Golden books and then also did the original illustrations for the Little House books.
