    ITEM#: 11340009

    With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

    As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

    As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

    Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

    Now, the very youngest readers can enjoy this classic tale in a beautiful board book version, bursting with the colorful animals and playful storytelling for which Jan Brett is beloved by millions of readers.

    Jan?s imagining of the story of Noah through the eyes of his granddaughter was a New York Times bestseller and is one of her most popular picture books.

    • A spurious rendition of a Biblical event
      Verified Purchase

      There has been a trend with some biographers to place themselves - or another invented character - within the events of their biography. I never thought anyone would do this to a Biblical account. When I read about this book before purchasing, I assumed the “grandchild” of Noah would be telling her story based upon the stories from her Grandfather. Instead the author invented a grandchild who was actually on the Ark in addition to Noah, his wife, his three sons and their wives. This places the Biblical Noah’s flood account in the category of fairy tales! There are enough lies in this world without inventing another one! The art is really creative and appropriate. It is unfortunate that the content is a slur on the Biblical record of the event. I am returning this book (and paying almost the full cost of the book in postage to do it!) because I don’t want any unsuspecting child or adult visiting my home to see or read this book. If you are looking for true Bible stories, do not buy this book!
