Jane Yolen, often called the “Hans Christian Andersen of America,” has just celebrated the publication of her 400th book. The acclaimed Owl Moon, The Devil's Arithmetic, and How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night feature amongst the 400, as well as seven books of adult poetry. She was the first woman to give the St Andrews University’s Andrew Lang lecture since the series began in 1927. Six colleges and universities have given her honorary doctorates.
