Award-winning Jane Ray has created a stunning version of Cinderella
which unfolds in six beautiful three-dimensional scenes. Cinderella, her
Ugly Sisters, her mean step-mother, the Prince - all are brought vividly

glorious Palace ballroom and a fairy tale garden. It is a work of beauty
to treasure.

Synopsis

Cinderella by Jane Ray

This is the story of Cinderella told through six beautifully illustrated 3D peep-through tableaux. A young girl with an unpleasant stepmother and two cruel stepsisters...and a Fairy Godmother with a magic wand.

<

This classic tale of Cinderella is theatrically retold in six exquisite three-dimensional scenes. Each scene is three layers deep so you can peer through to wonderfully romantic backdrops: a lonely kitchen, a sparkling ball room, a city nightscape and a magical garden. With fold-out flaps covered in starred indigo curtains, and a wooden stage, the magic of the theatre is beautifully recreated in this wonderful fairy-tale gift. Ideal for any fan of fairy tales, the classic Cinderella story is brought to life in this exciting new fold-out format with Jane Ray's exquisite artwork. It is a companion to Jane Ray's Snow White: A Three-Dimensional Fairy-tale Theatre It is a perfect gift for Christmas!

About the Author

Jane Ray

As a child

Jane Ray grew up in Muswell Hill, London, in a house full of books and music (her father is a pianist). She always loved to paint and draw and first started making books at the age of five. She never much enjoyed going to school as it was an interruption to what she really wanted to do and she still can’t believe that she is actually able to earn a living, staying at home and painting and drawing.

As an adult

Jane trained at art school in 3-dimensional design (ceramics, glass-blowing, furniture and jewellery design) but came back to illustration which is what she always wanted to do when she graduated. She has worked, among other things, as a life model, a special needs teacher, a telephone cleaner and a mural artist. She has three children and works from a very nice shed at the bottom of the garden.

As an artist

Jane started out, after leaving art school, by designing greetings cards, wrapping paper, book jackets and posters, and selling her paintings. However, the making of picture books has become the most important aspect of her work and she has recently begun to write as well as illustrate. She finds the picture book to be the most satisfying of art forms. She often goes into schools to talk about her books and to work with children and finds this a stimulating alternative to the blank sheet of paper.

10. She loves her garden studio and works there every day, after a two-mile walk each morning.
