About the Author:

Brian Paterson was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, the heart of 'Robert Burns' country in 1949. At the age of twelve he moved to Somerset, where he later met Cynthia whom he married in 1973. Upon their marriage the couple moved to London where Brian worked as a designer by day and on developing his own style of illustrating by night. Cynthia and Brian are the author and illustrator of the popular Foxwood Tales series.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2–Zigby, "the zebra who trots into trouble," appears in his third adventure. Looking for a place to fish, he and his friends Bertie Bird (an African guinea fowl) and McMeer (a meerkat) fail to notice a danger sign as they stumble into a hidden lagoon. Zigby enjoys a swim. Bertie plays in the sand. But when McMeer dozes off in a hammock, a giant octopus with "two bulging eyes" snags his fishing net. Zigby, wearing his yellow swim trunks, dives right to the rescue. With minimal struggle, and with the help of some striped fish that provide camouflage, he is able to retrieve the net. The illustrations have child appeal and strongly resemble those of Lucy Cousins. Rendered in solid colors with thick, black outlines, the characters appear stiff, and Zigby's cookie-cutter head retains the same unchanged facial expression throughout his adventure. Despite this, he has charm, and young listeners should enjoy this endeavor.–Melinda Piehler, Sawgrass Elementary School, Sunrise, FL
