The d'Aulaires were American writers and illustrators of children's books who worked as a team, completing almost all of their well-known works together. The couple immigrated to the United States from Europe and worked on books that focused on history such as Abraham Lincoln. 

Many of the d'Aulaires' early books depict the scenery and folktales of Norway: Ola, Children of the Northlights, East of the Sun and West of the Moon. Later they produced books about American heroes such as Pocahontas, Benjamin Franklin, and Buffalo Bill.

They wrote 27 illustrated books for children including many picture books.
