Get Well Soon, Jane Dyer!

Because I just read that illustrator Jane Dyer is recovering from a violent attack by a teenager, I wanted to wish her well and share a post from last year. Here it is:

Today is the last day for highlighting the illustrators in the Fairy Tale Art: Illustrations from Children's Books exhibit. Jane Dyer is our eighth and final illustrator. There isn't much biographical information about her on the web--most searches come up with oodles of information on a different Jane Dyer, a politician instead. Nevertheless, Dyer has been illustrating beautiful books for many years.  I have just a smallish list of them all at the end of this post. For now, I will offer her beautiful work from the exhibit...

Featured books:

Cinderella's Dress Child of Faerie, Child of Earth

Other books from the illustrator:

One Smart Cookie: Bite-Size Lessons for the School Years and Beyond There's a Train Out for Dreamland Animal Crackers: Delectable Collection of Pictures, Poems and Lullabies for Very Young

Piggins Hurry Hurry Have You Heard Animal Crackers: Animal Friends 

Babies on the Go Time for Bed (Big Book Edition) Goodnight Goodnight Sleepyhead

The Three Bears Rhyme Book Little Red Riding Hood (Pudgy Pals) Goldilocks and the Three Bears (Pudgy Pal Board Books) 

The Girl in the Golden Bower I Love You Like Crazy Cakes

  1. Horrific news.
    I do hope she's recovering as well and swiftly as possible.
    Her "Child of Faerie" collaboration with Jane Yolen is a favourite of mine. Thank you for (re)posting more of her works here.
