Catherine Stock was born on November 26, 1952 to a career diplomat and his artist wife in Stockholm, Sweden. Stock received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Cape Town in 1974, post-graduate certification in education from the University of London in 1976, and her Master of Arts from the Pratt Institute in 1978. Stock's career has included time spent as a lecturer in drawing, art history and children's literature as well as an art director and designer for several large publishing firms. Among them are the Putnam Publishing Group, Macmillian Publishing Company, and Houghton Mifflin.
Stock authored and illustrated a number of children's books, notably Emma's Dragon Hunt (Lothrop 1984), a "Reading Rainbow" selection. Besides writing and illustrating her own books, she provided artwork for over thirty books for juveniles.
Stock told Something about the Author that she remains a shy, quiet person who prefers books and painting as her contribution to the world and that her own stories reflect periods of her life spent in France, England, South Africa, the United States, and Hong Kong.
Included in this collection are twenty color separations for The Princess and the Pumpkin as well as the original illustration for the dust jacket. Most of the separations bear the art editor's marks instructing the printer about placement, gutters, and color choice. Together, these separations demonstrate the process by which illustrations come to press and offer some insight regarding how publishers position text and illustrations in such a way as to maintain the story's natural flow.
