Nan Brooks is a children's book illustrator who has illustrated numerous books from the 1970s onwards.[1]

Brooks grew up in Cape May, New Jersey, and studied advertising design in Philadelphia. After graduation, she soon moved on to freelance illustration. Her colorful style is partly influenced by her interest in the Eastern religions. Her most successful work is her contribution to the Little Golden Books, The Princess and the Pea. Two of her recently successful works are As I Kneel by Bonnie Knopf, and Making Minestrone by Stella Blackstone.
