About the Author

Kate Klise lives and writes on her forty-acre farm in a valley north of Norwood, Missouri (population: 300-something), where, not long ago, a man at the post office asked her, "Do you make those stories and up out of your own head?" Indeed she does!

M. Sarah Klise draws and paints in her studio in Berkeley, California, where she lives with two cats. In addition to her work as an illustrator, Sarah Klise teaches drawing to children and adults in San Francisco's Chinatown. Kate and Sarah are sisters who have previously collaborated on illustrated novels for children. Their most recent picture book, Why Do You Cry?, was published in 2006.

Reviews

Beating the winter chill and warming hearts are the themes in the Klise sisters' (Regarding the Fountain) darling tribute to knitwear and holiday giving. With a blizzard reportedly on the way, Mother Rabbit quickly knits one and purls two to craft a hat for her son. Little Rabbit, concerned for their friends, suggests they make hats for all of them, too. The thoughtful and elaborate design process leads to a very merry Christmas morning fashion show in town. The Klises consistently sound notes of tenderness and humor. Images of Little Rabbit's headgear sketches and Mother Rabbit's method of clandestinely taking measurements are a hoot. Ages 3-7. (Oct.)

K-Gr 2-A sweet tale of gift giving and friendship. When Mother Rabbit hears that a blizzard is expected to hit on Christmas Eve, she knits Little Rabbit a hat that shows off his long, beautiful ears. He loves it, and suggests that they give their animal friends hats as Christmas presents. Mother Rabbit agrees, and the two set off to take stealthy measurements, then carefully craft the hats to suit the personality and physical attributes of each animal. The finished products are, well, creative; the expressions on the animals' faces as they view their gifts in a mirror are priceless. However, when the snow begins to fall, the recipients quickly realize that their presents are just what they needed. This is a good selection for holiday sharing, but the detailed acrylic illustrations cry out for close inspection and would work best one-on-one or with a small group.-M. A.
