Read full description of the books:
Jan Brett is a hit-or-miss author/illustrator for me. Although I usually really enjoy her illustrations, and loved both story and pictures in some cases (Mossy, for example) sometimes her humans seem a bit "off" to me, or I don't connect with the story. So I was interested to read an early Brett with Fritz and the Beautiful Horses and I'm pleased to say I enjoyed it on the whole. Though I am a little tired of the underdog-having-to-become-a-hero-to-get-recognized storyline, I was happy that at least in this book the innocent children are the ones who truly benefited from Fritz's kindness and bravery (and they didn't take part in the shunning to begin with). Though I did wonder if (view spoiler)[other horses would eventually be allowed in, too--had the townsfolk really learned their lesson or did they just reward Fritz for his deed? (hide spoiler)] . I missed Brett's signature borders on the illustrations (only one--on the title page). But I loved the illustrations of the horses--especially Fritz, he was so scrappy and darling and sweet and I just wanted to give him a big hug and kiss! And the Scandinavian-esque style of clothing was really beautiful.

Read information about the authorWith over thirty three million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.
As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."
As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."
Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."
