Do You Know What I'll Do?

Do You Know What I'll Do? by Charlotte Zolotow, illustrated by Garth Williams.
Harper & Row, 1958.


Another library sale find, Do You Know What I'll Do? is a lovely book by Harper author-editor Charlotte Zolotow, featuring gorgeous illustrations by the great Garth Williams. A new edition was issued by HarperCollins in 2000, illustrated by Javaka Steptoe.  I'm a Steptoe fan, too, and I think both artists do Zolotow's gentle tale justice in completely different ways. You can check out the new version here, if you choose.

The story is simple. A little girl tells her baby brother all the things she will do for him. It is poetic and beautiful and I love it.















Our copy is another library discard. It looks a little worse for the wear, I'm more than pleased. (Twenty-five cents. Crazy, right?)
