Margaret Tarrant

These completely adorable fairy tale illustrations were thoughtfully and beautifully composed by the prolific illustrator, Margaret Tarrant (1888-1959). Or, 'Aunt Maggie', as I like to call her. Yep, this incredible woman is actually somewhere – admittedly distant, but present nonetheless – in my family tree. In fact, the relationship is so remote that if you're reading this, you may be related to her as well. Margaret Tarrant has captured countless children's imaginations for many generations, I can't wait to read some of the nursery rhymes she has illustrated to my own children.
