Childrens Books by Famous Authors of Adult Books

Happily, I just stumbled on a post of children's books by famous authors of adult books-- authors like Langston Hughes, Salman Rushdie, and Aldous Huxley. The links at the end of the post include other children's books, including one by Andy Warhol. Thanks to Brain Pickings for these and other great finds.
