About the Author:

Over the course of his thirty-five-year career, Scott Gustafson’s work has appeared on everything from calendars and jigsaw puzzles to tea boxes, as well as in animated films - yet it is in illustrating children’s books that he finds the greatest artistic satisfaction. Retelling classic stories and fables in images offers an artist a variety of opportunities and challenges. Locations,  historical periods, sets, lighting, and costume and character designs are just some of the elements Gustafson needs to consider, all of which contribute to the oil paintings in this book and bring these tales to life. According to Gustafson, his work on Classic Storybook Fables represents some of his most enjoyable hours spent at the easel. Gustafson lives and works in Chicago with his wife, Patty.

Review:

“An eye-catching collection of eight short stories which [Gustafson] retells in lyrical, accessible language. Lush paintings appear throughout, and Gustafson subtly tailors his images to the mood of each story. . . . Readers will be entranced by the striking attention to detail in the artwork accompanying these stories of love, cleverness, and just deserts. Ages 5–8.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Sumptuous visual finery. . . . Agreeable fare for sharing on a lap.”
Kirkus Reviews
