Peter, Paul & Mary became famous for their ability to convey powerful, personal, and political messages through a repertoire of songs that resonated with millions of Americans in the 1960s. Their debut album, released in 1962, remained in the top 10 for ten months, and the Top 20 for two years. Their first hit single, "Lemon Tree," was swiftly followed by "If I Had a Hammer," which became an anthem of the Civil Rights movement and was performed by the trio at the 1963 March on Washington where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his legendary "I Have a Dream" speech. Their classic song, "Puff, the Magic Dragon," has been a favorite of children for almost fifty years, and the book version was a number one best seller. Over a span of more than fifty years, Peter, Paul & Mary touched the lives and hearts of tens of millions of people, won five Grammy Awards, produced thirteen Top 40 hits, and received eight gold and five platinum albums.Paris-born artist Christine Davenier has illustrated many children's books, including the best-selling The Very Fairy Princess, written by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Harrison; and The First Thing Mama Told Me by Susan Marie Swanson, which won a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year Award and a Charlotte Zolotow Award honor book. The many notable authors whose works she illustrated inclue Norma Fox Mazer, Madeleine L'Engle, Jack Prelutsky, and Judith Viorst. The Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books praised her work, noting that: "Sometimes illustrators take us to new worlds; sometimes they make us see our own familiar world anew. Christine Davenier gives daily life a freshness and genuine elan that you only hope the world outside her books can match."
