About the Author

Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide for nearly five decades with her magnificent voice and thoughtful interpretations. Many of Collins’s albums have been certified platinum and her version of Joni Mitchell’s "Both Sides Now" has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Her rendition of Stephen Sondheim’s "Send in the Clowns" won Grammy’s Song of the Year in 1975. Judy's film about Antonia Brico, co-directed by Jill Godmillow, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1974. Brico was Judy's classical piano teacher when she was young and was the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world. In 2000, Judy founded her own record label, Wildflower Records. In 2010 she enjoyed two huge successes with the New York Times best-selling picture books and CD version of OVER THE RAINBOW, illustrated by Eric Puybaret, and her latest album, Paradise, a collection of ten songs, including duets with Stephen Stills and Joan Baez.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Gail Cooke HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on October 11, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The song alone as sung by Judy Collins would be a pleasure to hear over and over again; the imaginative eye-popping full page paintings by Eric Puybaret are treasures. To have both in one book is a rare treat.

The same two who paired to bring us the bestseller Over The Rainbow have joined talents to give us the beloved When You Wish Upon A Star, a song that has been in many hearts for over 60 years. Few could sing it as touchingly as Grammy Award winner Collins, and few could create the visual fantasy land to accompany it as did artist Puybaret.

Do believe all ages will respond to the idea of hope as expressed in the song, and youngsters will surely ask to hear the enclosed CD played over and over again while looking at the enchanting images accompanying the familiar words.

Highly recommended.

Bought to play a few pieces when I got married to my wonderful wife. She enjoys Disney and I wanted something to play at our wedding. Hard to find piece of music at a reasonable price.

Format: Hardcover
This book (with CD enclosed) is follow-up to the "Over The Rainbow" collaboration from singer Collins and Illustrator Eric Puybaret. The song is of course from Disney's "Pinocchio" and won the Oscar for best song in 1940. (Surprisingly, the film is never mentioned in the book or the fly leaf.). The illustrator makes the "wish" one of world peace and the illustrations show an international array of clothing.

The CD inserted in the back has Collins recording of "When you wish...." Plus two other performances, recorded exclusively for this book. The first - "The Other Side of My World" was written by Collins. The second "All My Pretty Little Horses" - despite it being credited as a song "that Judy Collins wrote" on the flyleaf - is (as correctly noted in the credits of the book) a traditional song. Collins recorded a version of this song in 1990. But this version is still beautiful.

I do wish that the publishers had included the lyrics to "The Other Side...." In the back, so that parents - as well as their children - could follow along.

This book one that children are sure to enjoy and maybe introduce them to Collins' five decades or more of recordings.

I have always loved this song. This book is a beautiful way to express the song through words and captivating pictures. The CD is a nice touch as well.

Unfortunately the version of the cd sold with the book does not match the wording in the story book exactly. As a side note, this book is used in the Let's Play Music sound beginnings curriculum and the Gold Stars Cd purchased with this curriculum has the perfect version that follows the book pages exactly. We love using it at bed time.
