Overview

"Children (and adults) will thrill to the beauty of the pictures and the tender concern of a child for her father." — Kirkus Reviews

Hana and her father used to love to walk in the garden and play their favorite game. But ever since tulip fever struck Holland, Hana’s father has been consumed by greed, and now he is too busy even to kiss her good night. It is up to Hana — with some help from a special family friend — to find a way to remind her father of what’s truly valuable. With stunning art reminiscent of Rembrandt, this tender tale illuminates the enduring love between father and child.

Meet the Author

Deborah Noyes writes for children and adults. Of HANA IN THE TIME OF THE TULIPS, she says, "I'm fascinated by the seventeenth century in general, but just before I wrote this story, I was reading a lot of adult fiction and nonfiction about tulipomania, and I started to wonder how the phenomenon might have looked from a child's-eye view. Children have always witnessed history in the making, even if they weren't often invited to comment on it."

Bagram Ibatoulline was born in Russia, graduated from the State Academic Institute of Arts in Moscow, and has worked in the fields of fine arts, graphic arts, mural design, and textile design. He illustrated CROSSING by Philip Booth, THE NIGHTINGALE by Hans Christian Andersen as retold by Stephen Mitchell, and THE ANIMAL HEDGE by Paul Fleischman. He says, "I have always been a great admirer of Dutch and Flemish paintings, so when I was asked to illustrate HANA IN THE TIME OF THE TULIPS, I was absolutely delighted. It was my chance to dive into the story and study the period more closely — enabling me to match the style and tone of the Dutch masters."
