Read full description of the books The Striped Ships:Recently, when my son checked the library for Eloise McGraw books (because he loves The Golden Goblet), he found The Painted Ships, which takes place in the time of the Norman invasion of England in 1066. I was so excited to see this. We had read about the Norman Conquest, (thanks to Ambleside Online homeschool curriculum), and this past year my son and I were able to view a replica of the Bayeux Tapestry. It is an amazing work of art. I was so happy he found this wonderful novel that incorporates the invasion and the tapestry. In fact, I secretly read it on my own after he went to bed at night. It is the first children's book, other than animal stories, that made me cry.
Read information about the authorEloise Jarvis McGraw was an author of children's books. She was awarded the Newbery Honor three times in three different decades, for her novels Moccasin Trail (1952), The Golden Goblet (1962), and The Moorchild (1997). A Really Weird Summer (1977) won an Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Mystery from the Mystery Writers of America. McGraw had a very strong interest in history, and among the many books she wrote for children are Greensleeves, Pharaoh, The Seventeenth Swap, and Mara, Daughter of the Nile.
McGraw also contributed to the Oz series started by L. Frank Baum, writing with her daughter Lauren Lynn McGraw (Wagner) Merry Go Round in Oz (the last of the Oz books issued by Baum's publisher) and The Forbidden Fountain of Oz, and later writing The Rundelstone of Oz on her own. The actual writing of the books was done entirely by Eloise; Lauren made story contributions significant enough for Eloise to assign her co-authorship credit.
She lived for many years in Portland, Oregon before dying in late 2000 of "complications of cancer".
McGraw was married to William Corbin McGraw, who died in 1999. They had two children, Peter and Lauren.
