Jan Brett Quotes: I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books.

The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real.

Quotes about Jan Brett: I remember kids used to give me a penny for drawing them a horse. I loved horses, but I couldn't have one, so I would draw a horse for myself. I would make it food and a blanket for it to wear and a place to live.
