About the Author

Alison Lester is one of Australia s most popular children s authors and illustrators. She began illustrating children s books after she had her first child, and today has illustrated more than 25 books for children. Alison has won several awards for her writing and illustrating, including the 1989 CBC Honour Book Award for The Journey Home, and Best Designed Children s Book for Rosie Sips Spiders. When Frank Was Four reached number one in the bestseller list and was also a CBC Notable Book. Alison lives on a farmlet in rural Victoria with her husband and their three children.


K-Gr 2-- In a celebration of individuality, the seven youngsters from Clive Eats Alligators (1986) and Rosie Sips Spiders (1989, both Houghton) return to amuse readers with their activities. Double-page spreads show six of them reacting to such different subjects as ``secrets,'' ``dislikes,'' and ``midnight snacks,'' while the following spread shows the remaining child's coup de grace. Clive still has an affinity for alligators, Ernie dislikes leaking boots, and Rosie has definite cowgirl potential. The illustrations add to the cheerful zaniness of the text and contribute greatly to the book's success. Lester proves adept at capturing the idiosyncrasies of childhood. While not in story format, the characters' antics will encourage children to tell stories of their own. --Lori A. Janick, Parkwood Elementary School, Pasadena, TX
