    About "Marianna Mayer Michael Hague"

    1. Marianna Mayer Michael Hague

      Marianna Mayer lives in Roxbury, Connecticut I see folktales and myths as humankind s first stories, says Marianna Mayer They are a kind of collective dreaming, filled with timeless symbols and images we can all relate to, regardless of age or culture And, much as an oyster must be disturbed by a grain of sand in order for the pearl to be created, I often choose to retell stories in which I find unresolved fragments that are somehow perplexing to me Though widely known as a children s book writer, Marianna Mayer s early education focused on visual art It seems to me there was never a time when I didn t want to be an artist, she says I liked to tell stories with pictures and compose music My sister and I put on plays made up from my stories And then I decided to start writing a book, at the age of nine She published her first book at the age of nineteen After college, she studied painting at the Art Students League in New York City Her experiences as an artist provided many images that she began to incorporate into writing Gradually, she shifted to the written word as a medium of expression She explains, I began to feel freedom when using words as my paints and plots as my canvases While in the midst of a writing project, I live so much in my mind that what takes place in my imagination becomes quite real to me I try to become part of the culture of a particular tale as much as possible While working on Baba Yaga and Vasilisa the Brave, for example, I read all I could about Russia What I learned about Slavic mythology helped to deepen my understanding of the story I listened to Russian music, ate Russian food which I love , and tried in other small ways to enter into the essence of that culture My writing is deeply personal First and foremost I write for the child who still lives within me Then to the child in others, whether that child resides in a young person or an adult I m striving to reach out to that spirit of wonder within us all The stories I was told as a child, those half remembered folktales and myths, have become the foundation for what I continue to work on in my books The sense of hope that books instilled in me as a child saw me through many difficult times Because of this, I choose characters who face overwhelming odds but triumph through courage and perseverance Similarly, myth allows a child to believe in his or her own dreams and can instill a boundless hope for the future.

    1. A gem. This book is a feast for the eyes and a delight for the imagination. Every page is bordered with beautiful flowers - many of which are explained in the text and the rest of which are explained in the back of the book. Using these beautiful flowering herbs and other classic Medieval references, this book teaches the alphabet through the use of beautiful unicorn lore and artistic illustrations.


    2. This book uses the alphabet to provide information about the unicorn and its magical powers of healing and protection of animals of the world. It is revealed from the beginning of time to this present day some believe in the unicorn.




    3. Fantastic illustrations - the only problem is that the text/subjects feel forced. Everything is "Like the unicorn," It feels like propaganda.
