An author and poet, welcomed for his reflective and thought-provoking style, retells 10 stories from different cultures - from around the world and through the ages - which each highlight the importance of taking care of the world. These stories - from ancient Greece, the Far East, the Celts, Africa, Greenland, Russia, China, Japan, South America and ancient Israel - afford wonderful opportunities for Jane Ray's paradisiacal paintings of trees and flowers, animals and birds... in short, all creation.
Born in London, Jane studied art and design at Middlesex University. Her main study was ceramics and she didn't start to illustrate until she left college. Her first published work was a series of greetings cards for Roger la Borde, followed by book jackets, and eventually black and white illustrations for a poetry anthology. Her first full colour picture book was in 1989. Since then Jane has illustrated numerous children's books, including for Lion Children's Books, The Lion Classic Christmas Stories, and Stories for a Fragile Planet. Jane regularly exhibits her work at Primavera, Cambridge, and at The Illustration Cupboard, London.
