Rebecca Dautremer

I have to share this amazing author-illustrator with you! A while ago, just before a trip to Paris, I looked for and found all the names and addresses of every possible children's book store in that beautiful city. I lived there for a while in 1991-1992, so I was familiar with the names of the streets and quartiers I found. For about a week, I explored the stores, and found some amazing books. One of the books I purchased was L'Amoureux, by Rebecca Dautremer. I immediately fell in love with the illustrations and with the story. Every time I went to Europe I'd look for more of her books. Many she wrote and illustrated, other she just illustrated. All of them are little gems.I've been waiting for Rebecca to be picked up by an American publisher, but so far nothing.
So, I wanted to show some of her illustrations here for you to enjoy, on a snowy day in March.


  1. I happened to come across your blog when I was looking for Rebecca Dautremer's name, after seeing her beautiful Princesses illustrations at my nieces'. In case you haven't found it anywhere else in the meantime, you can order "The Secret Lives of Princesses" in Enligh on I just did!

  2. She is a wonderful illustrator indeed,and so do you. I just found you through searching Rebecca Dautremer. I am so glad that I found you as well. I am pretty sure that American publisher will contact her soon. I am looking forward to it. I will work hard to become a fine illustrator one day.
