About the Author
Goode has illustrated 59 books for children, including anthologies and stories she has written herself. She's always been drawn to the classics and has illustrated many traditional fairy tales. Of her process she says: "I always begin with a rough dummy and then work on the individual pages, sketching very loosely and quickly to establish movement and composition. I do these dozens of times for each repositioning, enlarging, reducing, adding, and omitting. There are always hundreds of sketches for each book. It sounds tedious, but it is the most exciting part of creating a book. When I'm satisfied with these, I do the final art. All of my work is done on opaline parchment, a thin but strong paper. I sketch lightly in pencil and use water colors applied with very fine sable brushes. Sometimes I use colored pencils with the paint to soften the atmosphere."Goode lives in Watchung, New Jersey.
