Maud Fuller Petersham (1890–1971) and her husband, Miska Petersham (1888–1960), were a prolific and influential artistic duo in the realm of American children's literature. Maud, born in Rockport, Massachusetts, and Miska, hailing from Hungary, both brought diverse cultural backgrounds to their collaborative work. They met in New York City and married in 1917, forming a lifelong partnership both romantically and professionally. Together, they embarked on an illustrious artistic career, primarily known for their vibrant and imaginative illustrations in numerous children's books. Their distinct style combined elements of folk art and modernism, making their work instantly recognizable. In 1946, the Petershams received the prestigious Caldecott Medal for their illustrated book The Rooster Crows.
