"When a ship loaded with honey-sweet dried peas sailed along the wide river with its jolly captain and crew, the people in the towns along the shore waved friendly greetings. But not one of them could have guessed what was going to happen to that little ship. For as it sailed onward, it went aground on a sandbar." "She’d (Curren) always delighted in telling stories, though, and quickly realized she might be able to reach children as a writer. Within a short time she was publishing short stories in some of the leading children’s magazines of the day, including “Highlights for Children. ”In 1950, Golden Books published her first book, “The Little Red Caboose That Ran Away. ” It remained in print for over 30 years. Always interested in history, she wrote a number of books with historical subjects and themes. The nonfiction “Hear Ye of Boston” (1964) was one of her favorite works; a carefully researched history of Boston in picture-book format, it also incorporated her own knowledge and love of her native city. She also wrote “To Light A Torch” (1966) , a children’s biography of John F. Kennedy. She also wrote a number of books under different names, including several titles in the Trixie Belden (as Kathryn Kenney) and Meg (as Holly Beth Walker) girls’ mystery series. In the 1970s, she wrote several Raggedy Ann and Andy books."
