Kort biografi
Mirra Ginsburg was a Jewish Russian-American translator of Russian literature, a collector of folk tales and a children's writer. Born in Bobruisk (then part of the Russian Empire, now part of modern-day Belarus) in 1909, she moved with her family to Latvia, then to Canada, before they settled in the United States. Although she won praise for her translations of adult literature, including the Master and Margarita (1967) by Mikhail Bulgakov and We (1972) by Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin, she is perhaps most celebrated for her contributions to children's literature. She collected and translated a vast array of folktales from the Russian tradition, as well as Siberian and Central Asian traditions. Ginsburg died in 2000.

This picture books is quickly becoming one of my youngest daughter's favorite. It has started raining and an ant hides under a mushroom for cover. Every few minutes a bigger animal comes to hide under the mushroom the ant. When all think it can't cover the latest inhabitant, it surprisingly does. My daughters and I follow with bated breath to see if the mushroom would eventually fail to protect--like stacking blocks as high as we can until it falls much to our amazement. I won't give away the ending, but it is a cute read. Good for the 1st graders to read alone and great for PreK and Kindergarten read story times. My favorite part of the illustrations is the expressions of the animals as the try to fold themselves underneath the cap of the mushroom. I can't believe that this gem has been in my house for over 5 years and this is the first time I'm reading it.… (mere)
