About Jane Werner

Jane Werner - The Giant Golden Book of Elves and Fairies
JANE WERNER (1927-2002) edited the first 12 Little Golden Books that launched in 1942, one of which was The Poky Little Puppy, the bestselling picture book of all time. She went on to write and edit scores of Golden Books, including the bestselling My Little Golden Book About God.

SHEILAH BECKETT (born 1913) has illustrated dozens of children's books in her long career. Entirely self-taught, she was the first woman to work at the prestigious Charles E. Cooper advertising art studio, where she illustrated advertisements, album covers, and Christmas cards. But illustrating fairy tales has always been her first love, and is what she's best known for.
