Riassunto: In a starred review of Princess Furball, Booklist wrote, "Huck gracefully retells her favorite story...Lobel's accompanying paintings are richly evocative... A handsome, substantive retelling." In Toads and Diamonds, the gifted author-artist team tackles another familiar folklorist's theme: the kind and unkind sisters. Huck's polished retelling and Lobel's magnificently rich, humorous illustrations add up to a beautiful, timeless, and satisfying picture book, a book to treasure. Ages 5 up.
About the Author: "When I was a child, my favorite fairy tale was the story of Furball. I loved this variant of Cinderella that portrays a spunky young woman who uses her own ingenuity to change her life," says Charlotte Huck. She wondered why this dramatic story had never appeared in a picture-book edition, and it is not surprising that she chose it as the basis of her first book for children, Princess Furball. She felt that the selection of the right illustrator was crucial, and she says, 'Anita Lobel was the perfect artist for it. I think no one today extends the narrative of the story through art in the way Anita does. She is a true master." Charlotte Huck's retelling of a second classic fairy tale, Toads and Diamonds, was also illustrated by Anita Lobel.
Ms. Huck was a professor at Ohio State University for thirty years, and in 1996 the university established in her name the first endowed professorship in children's literature in the United States. Her honors include Ohio State University's Distinguished Teaching Award and the Arbuthnot Award, given annually by the International Reading Association to an outstanding professor of children's literature, and she was selected by the Association of Library Service to Children of the American Library Association to deliver an Arbuthnot Honorary Lecture.
Ms. Huck was the author of five editions of the classic Children's Literature in the Elementary School. As an anthologist, she selected poems of nineteen wellknown poets to create Secret Places, a collection for the youngest readers.
She lives in Redlands, California.
