Tasha Tudor’s Children Fight Over Estate

Print More

Almost two years after children’s book author and illustrator Tasha Tudor died at age 92, a Vermont court battle over her $2 million estate rages on.

At issue are family grievances, including whether Tudor was unduly influenced when she rewrote her will to give nearly everything to her elder son, Seth Tudor, and virtually nothing to his three siblings.

Elder daughter Bethany Tudor says she thinks lawyers could get all of it.

Tasha Tudor earned fame for the delicately drawn images and watercolors illustrating "Little Women," ”The Secret Garden" and dozens of other children’s books and for her own "Corgiville Fair" and "The Great Corgiville Kidnapping." She lived in Marlboro.

But the estate fight has torn at her image since her June 2008 death from complications of a stroke.
