Jane Cabrera has been writing and illustrating children's books for over 12 years. They have been published worldwide into over 20 languages. Jane created her first book ‘Cat’s Colours’ in 1996 whilst working as a graphic designer within children’s publishing. She was fortunate enough to design the first picture books for some now highly respected author and illustrators.From Booklist:
The old English folk song gets new legs in this spirited adaptation that showcases the cutie-pie animals that have romped through other Cabrera books. The author’s tweaking of the original lyrics (instead of a partridge in a pear tree, for example, her birds host a party in a pear tree) makes this more relatable to the youngest readers, while wizened older readers will enjoy the updates. Cabrera’s joyful, naive-style paintings feature rounded, Chagall-inspired hills and crazy angles, along with cozy interiors and big-eyed, rosy-cheeked animals. Scenes are set both inside and outside; for example, 3 little kittens toast marshmallows on the hearth and enjoy hot chocolate, while later, 7 squirrels ski, 9 foxes sled, 10 snowmen sing, 11 reindeer dance, and 12 penguins ice skate. Cabrera ends the book with sheet music for the traditional song, plus the new lyrics. Devotees of other Cabrera renditions of popular nursery rhymes should be duly enchanted. Preschool-Grade 1. --Connie Fletcher
