Leslie Patricelli is the creator of a series of best-selling board books starring her inimitable bald baby. She is also the author-illustrator of Higher! Higher! and Be Quiet, Mike! as well as two stories about the Patterson Puppies. She lives in Ketchum, Idaho.
Patricelli's trademark style of thick black lines on brushstroke-heavy backgrounds in jewel-tone colors are perfectly suited to her playful and irreverent subject matter. The young protagonist narrates both offerings in simple, direct sentences, and Patricelli fills the rest of the books with captions and sound effects galore... [A] playful delight... --Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Little listeners will delight in the book's celebration of the joys of body noise. ... For families willing to have some flatulence-themed fun, this is a must-have. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
