Every so often I run into an illustrator whose images are so beautifully rendered I become a bit obsessed with their work. It's akin to when I discovered Miro and Gustav Klimt while in college. I traveled to New York twice in one fall semester just to see their masterpieces up close and personal. I didn't care if those trips left me penniless by semester's end. It was worth it!

My latest creative hero isn't a dead artist. No, she's quite alive and well and utterly brilliant. Her name is Jane Ray...more
A classic presentation of the timeless fairy tale comes to life in the intricate illustrations and fantastic fold-out theater on each page. The art and design make this book absolutely phenomenal.
The story is much closer to the original; the illustrations and the pop-up work is phenomenal. I loved the amount of detail put into each page.

Born in London, Jane studied art and design at Middlesex University. Her main study was ceramics and she didn't start to illustrate until she left college. Her first published work was a series of greetings cards for Roger la Borde, followed by some book jackets, and eventually black and white illustrations for a poetry anthology with Orchard Books.
