About the Author:

The Orchard Book of Nursery Rhymes is Faith Jaques's last and most highly-acclaimed work. Her career as an illustrator spanned over forty years and her distinctive style is widely recognised and admired. Faith Jaques illustrated well over one hundred books for children and adults. She has always been associated with the most distinguished children's authors, illustrating books by Roald Dahl, Allan Ahlberg, Philippa Pearce, Nina Bawden and Leon Garfield. She also designed several sets of commemorative stamps. Faith Jaques died in 1997.

From School Library Journal:

A collection of familiar short verses, including Mother Goose rhymes, tongue twisters, and nonsense poems, with illustrations set in 18th-century England and France. Sutherland draws together a sizable collection (77 entries) of nursery rhymes that will appeal to both parents and children. One or two rhymes are arranged with illustrations per page making the book best suited for lap sharing. The introduction and "Selector's Notes" provide background information for interested adults but point serious scholars to other sources. Jaques' brightly colored drawings give vibrant life to the well-known verses. Her attention to research is reflected in many details, from clothes to wallpaper to cooking utensils. With the help of the "Illustrator's Notes" at the end of the book, parents can explain how the pictures represent upper- and lower-class life in another time period and explore a new dimension of the rhymes. The Orchard Book of Nursery Rhymes is similar in format and content to the Random House Book of Mother Goose (Random, 1986), selected and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, and Tomie dePaola's Mother Goose (Putnam, 1985). The Lobel and dePaola cartoonlike illustrations may have more immediate child appeal, but Jaques' formal approach will be increasingly appreciated as each rereading brings new surprises. Any library in need of a new look at an ever popular subject will be capably served by this effort. --Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, County of Henrico Public Library--Fairfield Area Library, Richmond, VA
