The second collaboration between Tobi Tobias and Trina Schart Hyman.

Jane dreams of an alternate life, of having different personal characterizes and environment, bright and lovely, but faces her rather down-to-earth and practical-minded family. A charming story of the solace of imagination.

Trina Schart Hyman (1939-2004) was an American illustrator of children's books whose work received a Caldecott Medal, three Caldecott Honors, and a Golden Kite Award.

Tobi Tobias (1938-2020) was a Brooklyn-born author of a number of children's books, but was perhaps better known for her work as a dance critic, which included 22 years as the critic for New York Magazine. Her work also appeared in The New York Times, The Village Voice, Dance Magazine, and Arts Journal. She won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 2012.
