REBECCA EMBERLEY and her father ED EMBERLEY, winner of the Caldecott Medal for Drummer Hoff, have created the highly praised picture books Ten Little Beasties, Chicken Little, The Red Hen and The Ant and the Grasshopper. Both live in New England--Ed in Massachusetts and Rebecca in Maine.
"Remember the thrill of learning and retelling the Itsy Bitsy Spider (aka the "Incy Wincy Spider," the "Eency Weency Spider" and according to Wikipedia, five other variations)? The talented daughter-father team of Rebecca Emberley and Ed Emberley has remixed the classic in their trademark style, deftly delivering a stunning color palette, palpable rhythm, and steady movement. If that's not recommendation enough, then check out the "buy a book, give a book" program from the publisher, Two Little Birds." Parents' Choice Awards "The Itsy Bitsy Spider is a children's picturebook illustrating the classic nursery rhyme with vivid, unforgettable abstract artwork contrasting bright colors. The spider itself is not anthropomorphized, but rather a stylized portrayal of a genuine arachnid, complete with compound eyes. A short but sweet read-aloud storybook, perfect for parents and children to share, as long as none of them have arachnophobia!" Midwest Book Review"
