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

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.
