Lily grew up in the wilds of snowy nowhere, spending much of her time talking to animals and making up stories. She has continued to do this in her adult life, and now writes both fiction and non-fiction books for children. Her titles include big books about dinosaurs (Dinosaurium), rhyming books about dinosaurs (The Dinosaur Department Store), stories about escapee hot dogs (Hello, Hot Dog!), and lift-the-flap books about chickens (Five Little Chicks).

Most Disney fans would be able to tell you the stories of 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Sleeping Beauty,' and 'Snow White' according to the Walt Disney Animation Studios - they've become so ingrained in the public consciousness. These beautiful new hardback editions offer new insights into these animated classics.As well as retelling these beloved stories, the books contain a wealth of paintings, sketches and concept art from the original Disney Studio artists.It was fascinating to see how characters developed from the first sketches to finished articles and to learn about the artists who created them in a special section at the end of the book.I am sure that fans of the Disney films would be absolutely thrilled to have one of these special hardback editions for their book collections, and they would make a great gift for younger fans to keep and enjoy as they grow up. * Library Girl and Book Boy *
