Slobodkin, Louis

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1903-1975) US illustrator and author who is perhaps best known for his many picture books (none are listed here). Of sf interest is the Space Ship series beginning with The Space Ship Under the Apple Tree (1952), designed for younger readers within what would now be thought of as the Young Adult market. Young Eddie, a pleasant-tempered boy scout, meets a young Alien who disguises his Spaceship so the two can travel around the world and learn things. [JC]
