About the Author
As a young girl growing up in Tours, France, Christine Davenier loved listening to her older sister read fairy tales aloud. But she frequently found herself wondering, "What does the princess's beautiful dress look like? "or "How exquisite are her jewels? "Christine was left to her own imagination, for the books had few illustrations. So it comes as little surprise that today, Christine embraces her career as an illustrator. "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to create the illustrations I dreamed about seeing as a child," she says.

When Christine was fourteen, she received her first box of watercolor paints, a gift from her grandmother. That was the beginning of many afternoons spent painting together in her grandmother's garden. "My grandmother was an extraordinary woman," Christine says. "Even though she worked in an office all her life, she was an artist through and through. She shared everything she knew about color--in painting and in life. Her wisdom and talent still inspire me today."

She has illustrated many picture books, including "Sally Jean, the Bicycle Queen" by Cari Best. She lives in Paris, France.
