A Brattleboro Words Trail Site

Tasha Tudor:

Marlboro, VT

Tasha Tudor’s 1944 classic, Mother Goose.

Mother Goose herself lived in the hills of Southern Vermont—no, not the imaginary Mother Goose of old European lore, but Tasha Tudor, the prolific children’s book illustrator born in Boston and best known for her Caldecott-winning 1944 picture-book, Mother Goose.

Tasha Tudor moved to Vermont later in life, in 1971. Her son cleared a wooded lot up in the Marlboro hilltops, and he used only hand tools to build her new Cape Cod-style home.

Site research in progress. Check back soon for more of the story.
