About the Author

Linda Ashman (lindaashman.com) is the author of more than thirty picture books and the creator of The Nuts and Bolts Guide to Writing Picture Books. To her, a well-done picture book is a work of art. But, she says, "The real magic happens when a picture book is shared and a child laughs, asks questions, studies the illustrations, and says, 'Read it again.'" Her books have been included on the "best of the year" lists of The New York Times, Parenting and Child magazines, the New York Public Library, Bank Street College of Education, and the International Reading Association. She leads writing workshops and gives presentations about writing and children's books at conferences and schools. She lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with her husband, Jack, their son Jackson, and their two dogs. Chuck Groenink (www.chuckgroenink.com) hails from an overgrown village among the peat bogs in the north of the Netherlands, where he spent his formative years climbing trees, drawing, reading, and cycling. He attended the Artez Institute of Visual Arts in Kampen, graduating from the department of illustration in 2004. He lives in Hudson, New York with his wife and two cats.

Reviews

*"Beautifully paced, rhymed, and cadenced . . . The text reads aloud well, with natural places for kids to join in . . . a subdued palate of deep blues, grays, and tawny browns . . creates a strong sense of the setting and the appealing characters. Just right for reading aloud on cold, wintry nights." --Booklist (starred review)
*"Ashman's meticulously crafted rhymes are a delight to read, and the page turns build gently tension (who's at the door now?) Groenink makes the cabin look eminently cozy. . .And his forest creatures--who yawn in unison with William each time they try to get some shut-eye--are as adorable as it gets."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
