About Ruth Sanderson
I loved two things the most when I was growing up - fairy tales and horses. I used to play in an abandoned theme park near a friend's house ---our imaginations went wild there. I loved a little stone cottage which was supposed to be the house of the Seven Dwarves. And over the past 40 years I have been drawing and painting fairy tales and horses both for the 80+ books I have illustrated. Many of my fairy tales are now back in print, including THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES, CINDERELLA, and THE SNOW PRINCESS. I also illustrate the HORSE DIARIES series from Random House. My daughter Whitney Sanderson is one of the authors in the series, with three books, and a fourth one in the works.
I also love cats. A CASTLE FULL OF CATS is a humorous story in rhyme. GOLDEN DREAMS, THE ART OF RUTH SANDERSON, is an art book on my 40-year career as an illustrator.
