Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Who is the young maiden that suffers the consequence of her parent’s actions by living in a tower? In the German story, the woman is called Rapunzel; in the Filipino version, the young lady is named Clotilde; and in the Italian tale, she is known as Petrosinella (Parsley). As fairy tales pass from person to person and from place to place, the stories change to accommodate different cultures. The three different versions of the fairy tale about a young woman who is locked up in a tower and is saved by her future husband are concise and the plots move from event to event. For example, Rapunzel is gone and the prince finds her; Clotilde’s necklace connects her to her love; and the name changes from Petrosinella to Parsley. Children may wish to compare other versions of the same tale written by different authors. This book includes a brief introduction about fairy tales, a glossary, teaching ideas, and some resources. The book is a part of the “Multicultural Fairy Tales” series that also includes versions of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Snow White. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung; Ages 4 to 8.

Meet the Author

Cari Meister has written more than a hundred books for children, including the "Tiny" series (Penguin) and the "Meet the Monsters" series (Stone Arch Books). She has received many awards for her books. Most recently, "Airplane Adventure" (Stone Arch Books), was named to "Parents" magazine Best Books for 2010. Cari has been fascinated by the night sky ever since she can remember. Her love of space and stars led her to Space Camp when she was growing up. Today, Cari lives in the mountains of Colorado, with her husband, four boys, two horses and one dog.

The fourth girl in a family of 8 children, Colleen Madden made it through childhood pretending to be a space princess with a wookie sidekick and drawing in her cardboard box art studio. Colleen graduated from a small liberal arts school in Massachusetts, with a contract major in illustration and English literature. She is currently residing in the Philadelphia area, with her writer-husband, Patrick, and their 2 sons, Sean and Gabe. She is daily inspired by her 3 boys, who champion the quirkier and more complicated side of life and always, ALWAYS make her laugh out loud. She has illustrated for many different kinds of clients and is the recipient of an International Greeting Card Louie Award. When not illustrating, Colleen can be found battling slugs in her shade garden or pretending to be a long-distance runner.

Eva Montanari was born in Rimini, Italy, in 1977. She started out as a children’s books author and illustrator while she was still a student, graduating from the State Institute of Art and the European Institute of Design in Milan. Now she is an internationally recognized artist that wrote and illustrated children books that have been published in Italy, United States, Japan, Taiwan, France, Spain, UK and Germany.

I was born on the 7th of november 1986 in Cuneo, a city near Turin, Italy .
As a young child, I was always drawing and painting and after my graduation I finally decided to make my great passion into a career! This was one of the best choice in my life.
I attended a three years post diploma degree, with a master of Illustration at the IED of Turin, Italy, where I graduated in July 2008. During this experience I built up my artist’s skills, with a regardful eye to the juvenile illustration market.
In 2010 I became part of the freelance Illustrators represented by the MB Artists of New York, having the great possibility to work with several important publishers.
This job is amazing and I just want to keep growing up in the great word of illustration, my job and my passion at the same time.
