|Behind the book:
Kevin Henkes, the author and illustrator of many wonderful books, wrote this story. He asked me to illustrate it for him. He didn't see any of the pictures until I was done. Kevin was happy with the book and so was I!
"The gouache pictures done in pure, bright colors, are flat, cartoonlike, humorous, and winning..." School Library Journal
