About the Author

James created his first Katie book 'Katie's Picture Show' over twenty years ago as a way to share his enthusiasm for art with children. His series of Katie books are much-loved and respected as an early introduction to art. 'Ella Bella Ballerina and the Sleeping Beauty' was James's first title featuring the adorable Ella Bella, and has been illustrated using a new delightfully retro art style. James lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and son.


K-Gr 3-Under Madame Rosa's tutelage, Ella Bella and her classmates pretend to be baby swans as they dance to Tchaikovsky's ballet. Ella's imagination draws her into the story and she comes to the aid of Odette, the Swan Princess, under the spell of a wicked sorcerer. Mayhew's watercolor illustrations have elegant lines and are by turns romantic and dramatic as the child helps to reunite the princess and her beloved prince. The simple text is equally graceful. An endnote also provides background on the classic ballet. This addition to the charming series will appeal to fans of ballerinas and princesses.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada (c) Copyright 2011.
