John Parr Miller (1913–2001), not to be confused with the playwright J.P. Miller, played a significant role in shaping the enchanting world of children's art and literature. His early career was as an animator for the legendary Walt Disney during the Golden Age of Animation. In fact, he was among a select trio of artists entrusted to establish Disney’s Character Model Department, marking his prominence in this iconic animation studio. After World War II, the esteemed Little Golden Books came knocking, recruiting Miller and other Disney veterans to infuse the charm of animation into children's books, making them accessible to a wide audience. The results were nothing short of magical! Miller's illustrious portfolio includes beloved titles like Little Red Hen, Little Peewee, The Marvelous Merry-Go-Round, Tommy's Wonderful Rides, The Circus ABC, and many more! These works define the quintessential Little Golden Book style, ensuring that Miller's legacy will be cherished by many more generations of children.
