Story Of The Nutcracker Ballet by Deborah Hautzig
affordable edition. Art by a Caldecott Honor Book artist complements a succinct
narration that is ideal for young children.
Her love for Europe shows in the setting of many of her books, Paris in particular, where two of her picture books, Where's Our Mama? and Mama's Perfect Present, take place. She drew on her experience of living for a short time in Pennsylvania for the artwork in Cynthia Rylant's story of Appalachia, When I Was Young in the Mountains, for which she was awarded a Caldecott Honor Medal.
She has illustrated 59 books for children, including anthologies and stories she has written herself.
Goode lives in Watchung, New Jersey.
