Speaking of Mother Goose's Little Treasures, she says that the rhymes "are the most mysterious fragments from our shared memory: long-ago laughter of little meaning and echoes of ancient spells." She lives in Hampshire. Rosemary Wells is a well-loved and prolific creator of picture books with a career that spans more than thirty years, with books including the famed Mother Goose anthologies and Felix and the Worrier (9780744598322). She lives in Connecticut, USA.
