"This picture book biography of Jane Austen is charming in every way. Lovely illustrations complement the setting and the subject. Jane's life story is told in simple, concise language that highlights her achievements and the challenges she faced to achieve them, but also the simple pleasures and strong relationships that made her life enjoyable. The book also includes at the end a historical timeline of Jane's life, as well as a list of her major novels with publication dates, famous quotations, and a brief summary (and more charming art). Reading the timelines reminded me afresh how much Jane's own life informed her stories, from sibling relationships to retirement in Bath to the loss of family members, and the resulting financial insecurity for female dependents of the deceased. All of which is achieved in a light tone that befits the art and Jane's own writing.
An utterly enjoyable book worth sharing with the children in your life. And art almost worth decorating one's home with. Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy.
