“Developmentally significant to American picture books, The Story of Ping was one of the earliest collaborative efforts between a well-known writer and an accomplished illustrator. This important change in the making of picture books took hold, flourished, and came to fruition years later during the Golden Age of children’s book publishing” (Silvey, 679).
