About the Author

Leah Marinsky Sharpe has been fascinated with fairy and folk tales since she was a child. When her mother asked her to collaborate on a children's book she thought immediately of The Goat-Faced Girl, a traditional story that left an impression on her when she came across years before.

Jane Marinsky is an illustrator whose work has appeared in many publications. Her two children's books with Godine are The Goat-Faced Girl and Just Perfect.

Reviews
"Rich storytelling and intricately imagined artwork make this debut a standout... Isabella is lovely but lazy, and her lizard/sorceress mother gives her the head of a goat when she becomes engaged to Prince Rupert... Sharpe's retelling maintains a smart, modern tone throughout... A must for anyone who would rather be a sorceress than a princess." -- Starred Review "Publisher's Weekly (Dec. 09)"
