Shirley Rousseau Murphy
Leo and Diane Dillon 1999
A tremendously beautiful book, both in story and illustrations. Told with the feel of a folk tale, Resshie is the daughter of the East wind. She becomes a weaver and is famous for her skill but is lonely and longing for a husband. She tries to weave one and capture one, but it is only after a mysterious prince challenges her weaving skills does she find a lover who is as wild and like the wind as she is.
The Dillons are a husband and wife illustrator team and their work is wonderful. More of their books will show up on this blog.
