Michael Hague has illustrated some of the best-loved works of children's literature, including "The Velveteen Rabbit, ""The Wizard of Oz", and "The Teddy Bears' Picnic". His lush, detailed watercolors have earned him a dedicated following and a reputation as one of America's foremost illustrators of books for children. He lives with his wife, Kathleen, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
"Beautiful illustrations, which capture the whimsy and absurdity inherent in folk and fairy tales." - School Library Journal
"Hague's retellings tend toward the gentle (the wolf in Little Red Riding Hood is merely chased away), but they get to the emotional core of each tale. All " - Publishers Weekly
