The zoo has long since lost its childhood magic for me. The work of Fern Bisel Peat, however, continues to captivate. She lived from 1893 to 1971 and while her illustrations appeared in books, magazines and paper doll collections and on tin toys and puzzles throughout the ’30s and ’40s, I can find little of her work after that. My favorite is still the first one I saw, “Cinderella,â€ published in 1943, which was my Momâ€™s growing up. The stepsisters look rotten enough to make your molars ache and Cinderella has lost none of her charm. You can find Cinderella, and other great examples of her work, at AbeBooks.com. One Iâ€™ve just discovered is Nathaniel Hawthorneâ€™s Tanglewood Tales, a retelling of the Greek myths for children, which show a different side of Peatâ€™s work. Thankfully, it seems Iâ€™m not alone in thinking her work has lost nothing over time. Single-page folios from books, original watercolors, and this new puzzle can also be found on Esty and eBay. — Sarah L.
