Mary Engelbreit grew up studying the illustrations in the vintage storybooks of her mother’s own childhood, and she developed a unique style that harkens back to those simpler times. Mary’s distinctive images have made her a celebrity to millions, who eagerly snap up gift items, calendars, books, fabrics, and more.
Mary’s dearest wish has always been to illustrate for children. Her New York Times bestselling the night before christmas is already part of the holiday tradition for families across the country. Other treasured additions to a child’s first bookshelf are her New York Times bestselling Mary Engelbreit’s Mother Goose, Mary Engelbreit’s Nursery Tales, and Mary Engelbreit’s Fairy Tales.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2–The star of Queen of Christmas (2003) and Queen of the Class (2004, both HarperCollins) is back for one of her favorite holidays. Ann Estelle's class is decorating boxes to hold their valentines, and she does not want hers to be ordinary. She gets so involved in making her box unique that she forgets to make cards for her classmates. Panicked at the last minute, Ann Estelle starts giving away pieces of her prized creation–a flower to Gracie, feathers to Audrey Ann, a ribbon for Mrs. McGilligan's hair. At the end of the day, her box is plain again but filled with valentines from her friends. The story is a bit flat, but the illustrations are classic Engelbreit–patchy and full of doodles of color, patterns, hearts, and flowers–and will appeal to crafty children and Ann Estelle fans.–Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, MA
