Paris-born artist Christine Davenier has illustrated many children's books, including the best-selling The Very Fairy Princess, written by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Harrison; and The First Thing My Mama Told Me by Susan Marie Swanson, which won a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year Award and a Charlotte Zolotow Award honor book. The many notable authors whose works she illustrated include Norma Fox Mazer, Madeliene L'Engle, Jack Prelutsky, and Judith Viorst. The Bulletin of the Center of Children's Books praised her work, noting that: "Sometimes illustrators take us to new worlds; sometimes they make us see our own familiar world anew. Christine Davenier gives daily life a freshness and genuine elan that you only hope the world outside her books can match."
