About the Author

Gillian Shields is the author of Bloomsbury's Mermaid SOS series and other books for young children.Anna Currey's warm, classic watercolor style has brought to life many enchanting picture books. She lives with her husband, two daughters, a dog and a variety of goldfish.


PreS-The rabbit family introduced in When the World Is Ready for Bed (Bloomsbury, 2009) is eagerly awaiting the birth of a new baby. Shields's short, rhyming couplets are complemented by Currey's warm, sunshine yellow watercolors as they show the rabbits preparing the nursery and greeting the little one when it finally arrives. "We made your room/so warm and snug,/With crib and blanket,/Lamp and rug." The colorful paintings are full of detail yet create a peaceful atmosphere and are the perfect background to the simple, relaxed text. Bearing baskets of lettuce, guests arrive wearing their Sunday best and bounce the little one on their knees as they celebrate. When they are gone, the new baby remains under the careful watch of its brothers and sisters as "Now the world/Still waits for you,/To grow, and bloom,/And be, and do." This tender picture book is perfect to share with new siblings who are impatient to greet a little one of their own.-Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2011.
