Author Bio
Paul O. Zelinsky
Paul O. Zelinsky studied art at Yale University, where one of his instructors was Maurice Sendak. After graduating from Yale, Zelinsky attended the Tyler School of Art in both Philadelphia and Rome. He has illustrated the works of such authors as Avi, Beverly Cleary, and Jack Prelutsky. His illustrations for RUMPELSTILTSKIN earned that book a Caldecott Honor Award. Zelinsky's picture book, THE MAID AND THE MOUSE AND THE OLD ODD-SHAPED HOUSE, was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book, as was THE STORY OF MRS. LOVEWRIGHT AND PURRLESS HER CAT. He won the 1998 Caldecott Medal for his version of RAPUNZEL.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"By filling his illustrations with visual fine points and making them historically specific, Zelinsky also reminds readers of the idea that this story, or something like this story, actually could have happened. A mother figure who wants to keep her 12-year-old daughter away from the world, a daughter who falls in love anyway, even a girl who gets pregnant at a young age--are all characters whose feelings can seem real, whether long ago or today." - Maud Lavin 11/16/1997

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Graphically articulated with lavish attention to detail, this is strongly balanced with a formal but flowing text..." - Betsy Hearne January 1998

Five Owls
"Successfully designed to make readers stop and think, this version of the 'Rapunzel' tale bears many implied messages that deserve careful examination....The illustrations are lovely and loving." - Kristin Ellerbusch Gallagher January/February 1998
