About the Author

Cari Best's acclaimed picture books have delighted many young readers and include When We Go Walking, as well as Sally Jean the Bicycle Queen and Shrinking Violet, both selected School Library Journal Best Books of the Year. When she's not writing, walking, or riding her bike, Cari Best can be found digging with her dog, Jennie, in her own back yard, where she never knows what treasures she'll discover. Cari Best lives in Connecticut.

As a young girl growing up in Tours, France, Christine Davenier loved listening to her older sister read fairy tales aloud. But she frequently found herself wondering, What does the princess's beautiful dress look like? or How exquisite are her jewels? Christine was left to her own imagination, for the books had few illustrations. So it comes as little surprise that today, Christine embraces her career as an illustrator. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to create the illustrations I dreamed about seeing as a child," she says.

When Christine was fourteen, she received her first box of watercolor paints, a gift from her grandmother. That was the beginning of many afternoons spent painting together in her grandmother's garden. "My grandmother was an extraordinary woman," Christine says. "Even though she worked in an office all her life, she was an artist through and through. She shared everything she knew about color--in painting and in life. Her wisdom and talent still inspire me today."

She has illustrated many picture books, including Sally Jean, the Bicycle Queen by Cari Best. She lives in Paris, France.
