Sidelights

Beginnning her career as a commercial artist after graduating from college, Sheila Bailey was inspired to become a book illustrator by a friend, as well as by her appreciation of nineteenth-century picture-book artists such as Edmund Dulac, Jessie Wilcox Smith, and Arthur Rackham. After illustrating a number of books for California-based Portunus Publications, Bailey was motivated to write the text for her 1999 illustrated work, The Wizard and King Whifflegroan, because she wanted to create a story about the environment that would be enjoyable to young children. Written with the help of coauthor Larry Miller, Bailey's story focuses on a young king who refuses to take a bath. Even though the increasingly odorous monarch becomes plagued by swarms of flies that follow him around constantly, he still refuses to bathe. Instead, the king orders the royal wizard to cast a spell that will remove all flies from the kingdom. Aware that such a wish will have an unforseen but unpleasant outcome, the clever wizard agrees to the king's demand on one condition: that when the king asks him to undo the spell because of the negative effects it will have on the environment, his highness will agree to take a daily bath from that day forward, forever.

Bailey told Something about the Author: "I LOVE to read. I love to paint. I started out reading picture books and comic books. It's natural that I would want other people to be as hooked on stories and images as I am.

"I can't believe how many incredibly talented illustrators there are out there. I am a little surprised I am still getting work. I am working on my fifth book for foreign language editions."
