He wrote several operas, including "L'Enfant et les Sortileges" ("The Child and the Spell"), as well as ballets, and orchestral and chamber music. Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette collaborated with Ravel on "L'Enfant et les Sortileges" and wrote the libretto for it. Pegi Deitz Shea is the award-winning author of "The Carpet Boy's Gift," "Liberty Rising," "Patience Wright," "Tangled Threads," "Ten Mice for Tet," and "The Whispering Cloth," She lives in Rockville, Connecticut.
