About the Author

Working in 3 dimensions was an exciting way to communicate my ideas, writes Salley Mavor. I never thought that the assemblages and experiments I presented for critique would ever turn into a workable illustration technique. Salley Mavor is an award-winning children's book illustrator and the owner of Wee Folk Studio. She lives on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Visit her website at www.weefolkstudio.com.

Reviews

"When teachers bemoan the lack of knowledge of nursery tales in their young students, press this special volume into their hands, but get one for home, too: every family deserves a fine collection of nursery rhymes, and this is one of the best."--The Horn Book, starred review

"On every page, embroidery, knotwork and beautifully dyed wool felt form backgrounds for the dozens of individual figures and buttons, beads, driftwood and stones. The design is sumptuous, and the smaller details enchant."--Kirkus Reviews"Rarely have classic childhood verses been depicted with so much care and detail--and fabric....Mavor's intricate and colorfully embroidered work of art makes even the best-known childhood poems feel special and new again."--Publishers Weekly"An unusual and charming addition to nursery-rhyme shelves."--School Library Journal
