Steven Kroll, R.I.P.
Posted by: Ilene Cooper

Steven KrollSteven Kroll has died (“Steven Kroll, an Author of Children’s Books, Dies at 69,” by Dennis Hevesi, New York Times). From history to Hanukkah, Kroll wrote about it all. The author of 96 (96!) books for children, he started his career at Chatto and Windus publishing house in London and moved to Holt, Rinehart and Winston when he returned to the United States. In 1971, he decided he’d rather write than edit and in 1975 he published his first book, Milton is Missing. Booklist‘s reviews of his titles included descriptions like lively, fun, and appealing. An active presence in the children’s literature community, Kroll will be greatly missed.
