Artist Susan Jeffers retells “A Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme: THREE JOVIAL HUNTSMEN”.

Susan Jeffers makes the retelling of favorite stories for children happen better than ever before as she masterfully creates the pages. She published her first children’s book in 1970 and later was awarded a Caldecott Honor from the American Library Association given to the artist of the most distinguished American Picture Book, for “A Mother Goose Rhyme: THREE JOVIAL HUNTSMEN”. Children study the pages she has adapted and illustrated with details of animals in the woods. They happily see things that the huntsmen in the story miss. This very talented children’s book illustrator is an artist and an animal lover. She has patiently illustrated many children’s books, bringing the pages to life like no one else.
