"Zion met his only wife Margaret Bloy Graham (1920-2015) at Condé Nast. They were married in July 1948 and divorced in 1968. The couple made friends in the New York media scene, including Hans and Margret Rey, another husband-wife team responsible for the Curious George stories. H. A. Rey helped Graham refine her art portfolio and Margaret Rey introduced Graham’s work to Ursula Nordstrom, the celebrated children’s book editor at what was then Harper & Row. Zion was urged by his new wife and also Ursula Nordstrom, to write children's books. Zion remembers that it was Graham’s sketch of children gathering apples in an orchard, done several years earlier in Canada, that inspired his first book, All Falling Down (1951). The book received a Caldecott Honors for Margaret Bloy Graham's illustrations in 1952. " (from Wikipedia)
