Read full description of the books The Rabbits' Wedding:Ah, once-controversial picture books! This sweet, gently-told and illustrated depiction of idyllic love and marriage was once attacked for its interracial pairing of a black rabbit and a white one. (For all I know, there are still people who object to it for this reason.)
Williams, when confronted with being a promoter of miscegeny, said he "was completely unaware that animals with white fur, such as white polar bears and white dogs and white rabbits, were considered blood relations of white beings. I was only aware that a white horse next to a black horse looks very picturesque," and that his story was not written for adults, who "will not understand it, because it is only about a soft furry love and has no hidden message of hate."
Read information about the authorGenerations of children picture their favorite fictional characters as drawn by Garth Williams. Thus the unforgettable dapper mouse, Stuart Little, or the kindhearted spider, Charlotte and her pig friend, Wilbur. And many other animals (bears, dogs, kittens, crickets) fantastic creatures (elves, fairies) and children and grown-ups in books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, George Selden, Charlotte Zolotow, Else H. Minarik and many others. Garth Williams was also the writer of seven children's books, like Baby Farm Animals, but it is primarily as an illustrator that he will always be remembered. His most controversial book was Rabbit's Wedding, written and illustrated by him in 1958, for it stirred racial issues.
