About the Author

Timothy Basil Ering says that THE STORY OF FROG BELLY RAT BONE was inspired by a visit to Descanso Gardens, a botanical garden in Pasadena, California, where there is a private garden for urban Los Angeles schoolchildren. "For as long as I can remember, I have loved to mix up words and phrases into silly little combinations that would make me laugh," he explains. "I'd make up songs while meandering down the outer beach of Cape Cod to favorite fishing spots, and 'Frog Belly Rat Bone' was always a favorite string of nouns. Then one day in Pasadena, I sat at a tiny picnic table in the children's garden and began to sketch the garden's scarecrow. I knew at that moment that Frog Belly Rat Bone had found a home." Timothy Basil Ering's artwork has appeared in books, magazines, theater sets, private murals, and fine art galleries. A resident of Somerville, Massachusetts, he is enamored of the sea and has a passion for nature and the outdoors. This is his first picture book with Candlewick Press.

Reviews

Timothy Basil Ering's THE STORY OF FROG BELLY RAT BONE provides a dark-colored picturebook with handwritten pages as it tells of a boy's find of a strange, wonderful box filled with magic.
--Children's Bookwatch

. . . the art and the design are extraordinary. Ering's combination of hand-lettered text and scribbly, muddy, scratchy pictures looks like a collaboration between Tim Burton and Ralph Steadman (in a good mood).
--Booklist The big revelation here is newcomer Timothy Basil Ering's jaw-dropping illustrations: his moody, dramatically layered acrylics plunge us into a surreal otherworld about to flower.
--FamilyFun This compelling fantasy with whimsical illustrations celebrates the natural world and the world of imagination. It's a find for Earth Day.
--Yellow Brick Road Ering's illustrations ooze personality . . . FROG BELLY RAT BONE offers a rich harvest for adults and children alike.
--Star Tribune
