About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown, cherished for her unique ability to convey a child's experience and perspective of the world, transformed the landscape of children's literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites by Ms. Brown include My World; Christmas in the Barn; The Dead Bird; North, South, East, West; and Good Day, Good Night. Wendell Minor has illustrated numerous award-winning picture books, including Reaching for the Moon by Buzz Aldrin, Galapagos George by Jean Craighead George, and If You Were a Panda Bear by his wife, Florence Minor. Mr. Minor's art has been exhibited at the Norman Rockwell Museum, among other prestigious institutions throughout the country. He lives in rural Connecticut with Florence and their two cats.

Reviews

PreS-Gr 1-Large, almost tactile paintings of birds, butterflies, and bunnies combine well with the flow of Brown's charming poems, originally published in 1959. "Here comes a bunny/The first to stray/Out of April/And into May" is the first verse of "Song of Summer." Spring flowers, a loving mother and baby mouse, and a young fox and curious rabbit eyeing each other across the pages are some of the vignettes that grace this appealing book. A variety of sizes of paintings, ranging from a single animal on a crisp, white background to full-color, double-spread scenes, accents the verses. Onomatopoeic and motion words are reflected in the pictures with their ground-level perspective. These five beautifully and newly illustrated poems will enchant another generation of children.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
