Description

The ultimate gift for fans of Walt Disney's Cinderella. This beautiful picture book is illustrated by celebrated Disney artist Mary Blair, who drew the original concept art for the beloved film. Extract from Cinderella: Cinderella didn't have to tell her fairy godmother what she longed for. She did not have to ask for anything at all. Those things which were meant for her found her. A pumpkin in the garden became a coach. Four mice in the grasses became horses. And a child of rags became a vision. You will love rediscovering this traditional story which became a much-loved Disney film. It's perfect for sharing with fairy tale fans aged three years and upwards, as well as appealing to fans of Mary Blair herself and her gorgeous concept artwork. Key moments are featured in her art including the fairy godmother's magic and Cinderella dancing with the prince at the palace. You'll love tracing the origins of the film in these exquisite, rarely seen images that became one of Disney's most visually unforgettable classics. Have you collected all of the Walt Disney Classics: Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan? As a young artist, Mary Blair won a scholarship to the Chouinard Art Institute. Having joined Disney, the artistic influence of her concept art was strongly felt in Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan. After leaving Disney, Mary worked as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, creating advertising campaigns and illustrating several Little Golden Books, some of which are still in print today. Cynthia Rylant is an American author and librarian who has written more that 100 children's books. Several of her books have won awards, including her novel Missing May, which won the 1993 Newbery Medal and A Fine White Dust which was a 1987 Newbery Honor book. Two of her books are Caldecott Honor Books.
