About the Author

David Axtell was runner-up for the prestigious Mother Goose Award for his first picture book, FRUITS (ISBN 0 333 65311 4) which also won the Smarties Bronze Award. This is his second picture book.


PreS-Axtell takes a storytime classic to the African savanna, where loving sisters enjoy a day's adventure. With fruit, juice, and teddy bear in hand, they travel through towering green grasses under the watchful eye of a giraffe, swim through a dappled blue lake with zebras and a flamingo, and pull each other through a squishy swamp unbeknownst to a hippopotamus. They wake the lion sleeping in his cave, and as he follows them, they arrive home and shut the door safely. The adventure has neither dampened their spirits nor muddied their white anklets. Axtell's sun-soaked, impressionistic oil paintings offer beautiful landscapes and engaging details, from wild animals who linger at a safe distance, to a dropped teddy that is retrieved just in time. Large figures on the page make this a good choice for storytimes as well as lap times. Like Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt (McElderry, 1989), this lovely picture book will delight preschoolers.-Laura Scott, Baldwin Public Library, Birmingham, MI Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
