About the Author

Meritxell Mart is a writer, professor of humanities, consultant of entrepreneurship, and an expert in connecting ideas. She's also skilled in public speaking, motivation, and a foment of creative projects. Xavier Salom is an illustrator and paper engineer. He has collaborated with leading publishers in Spain and France and has worked on children's magazines. Xavier has won the Junceda Prize twice.


A parent recounts the stages of a fetus's development using vivid comparisons to objects in nature ("a little pearl inside an oyster"), while Salom 's life-size pop-ups show it cradled in its surroundings. The developing fetus is the size of a cherry, then of a frog, "as big as a sunflower," and, in the sixth month, "bigger than my hand, like a starfish surrounded by coral." In the eighth month, "it was almost time to fly," and the child is shown in a bird's nest, surrounded by white flowers. Mart includes details about a fetus's physical changes in the womb, as well as the mother's reflections on its movements: "Sometimes you had hiccups!" Young readers will enjoy seeing the gestational changes in each pop-up spread. Ages 5-7. (Mar.)
