About the Author

Award-winning illustrator Karen Jones began her career as a storyboard artist and editorial illustrator but it wasn't until she had children of her own that she discovered her true artistic passion: children's illustration. In addition to Midnight Madness at the Zoo, Karen has illustrated One Odd Day, My Even Day and My Half Day for Arbordale. She has also written and illustrated ABC Safari. Karen and her family live outside of Raleigh, NC. Karen's children join her on many research trips to museums, zoos and aquariums-a tough job, but someone has to do it!

K-Gr 2-In this rhyming companion to One Odd Day (Sylvan Dell, 2006), a boy wakes up to find that everything he sees represents an even number. His room suddenly has eight beds, and his mother has two heads. The child's "even" day gets odder on a class trip to the zoo. Alligators have antlers and lions have wings, all in multiples of two. At the end of the story, things return to normal, although there is a hint of more craziness to come. The back matter includes some interesting math activities. Lee's brightly colored illustrations are fantastical and contain strange elements not related to the concepts of even and odd. For example, the bouquet on the kitchen table is made up of fried eggs on stems, and the school bus seems to ride through the ocean on the way back from the field trip. In the earlier title, the boy's day includes both odd numbers and odd events. Together with that book, this one makes more sense, but alone the strange illustrations are a bit baffling and a little disconcerting. For a book about odd and even numbers that can stand alone, try Stuart J. Murphy's Missing Mittens (HarperCollins, 2001).-Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

My Even Day begins where One Odd Day ended. The story is similar to the first except that this day revolves around examples of even numbered and then concludes with the boy waking up to find that half his head has been shaved, leading the reader to believe that the next book will focus on fractions. - Teaching Children Mathematics
