More About the Author

Award winning children's book author and illustrator Matt Faulkner grew up in a small town just outside of Boston, Ma. Upon graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983, Matt took a job setting typography in NYC at an ad agency. Boy, was that the wrong job for Matt! Just as the studio manager was about to let him go, the owner of the agency saw the drawings Matt had done on his work table during lunch and hired him to draw storyboards for t.v. commercials! He got his own office and a pay raise! Woohoo!
Not long after, Matt created his first author/illustrated picture book- "The Amazing Voyage of Jackie Grace" with Scholastic. Since then he has created over 30 books for children. He delights in illuminating both historic stories and more fanciful tales and he works very hard not to get the two mixed up. Recently his author/illustrated book "A Taste of Colored Water" received the Comstock Honor award by the Minnesota State University, was chosen as a finalist by the California Commonwealth Club for it's 2009 Book award and was chosen as a winner in the pre-adolescent category by the National Storytelling Network. The NSNetwork also chose "Independent Dames: What You Never Knew About the Women and Girls of the American" (written by Laure Halse Anderson) as the winner of it's adolescent category in 2009. Matt and is engaged to author, Kris Remenar and currently lives with his son, Gabe, and two cat's on a little island in San Francisco Bay.

This is one of my favorite versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. The pictures of the castle are some of the most original, beautifully detailed illustrations I have ever seen. The boy and his mother are lovingly drawn with wit and whimsy. With the permission of the illustrator I had one of the castle pictures enlarged and it is prominently displayed in my library to promote fairy tales. It's just that good. I would recommend this author/illustrator's books to anyone. His vision for fairy tales is wonderful. I just wish he would publish more.

I thought because I was paying 30.00 for this book that it would be a hard back, big, beautiful book. Imagine my surprise when a carefully wrapped, thin, paperback book came in the mail. The story is the classical one, the art is great, except for one thing -- the pictures are not vibrant. After reading the story I decided to keep it until my two-year-old granddaughter is old enough to handle the idea that there is a giant who eats children and that thievery pays off.

Teaching children that stealing from the rich is okay if you are poor... no thank you. I told my child the police put him in jail for stealing.

Hello, I am Matt Faulkner, the illustrator of the book pictured above. The reviews attached to this book are for a version of Jack and the Beanstalk illustrated by Steven Kellogg. I hope you get a chance to check out the Jack and the Beanstalk which I illustrated. It has sold over 600k books since its publication in 1985.

Thank you,

Matt Faulkner
