Rod Campbell has been writing and illustrating children's books for over twenty years. Best known for his classic lift-the-flap title, DEAR ZOO, which has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, he is also the creator of the much-loved character, Buster. Ingeniously simple, with touches of gentle humour, Rod Campbell's books continue to be enjoyed by children, parents and teachers alike.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K ``Oh Dear!'' is young Buster's response each time that his search for eggs on his grandmother's farm is futile. The pattern is the same throughout his search: he looks in the barn, or sty, or pond, where a flap can be lifted to reveal the animal that lives there, making the sound associated with it. The animal is not labeled, so young listeners are called upon to make the identification themselves. When Buster finally tries the henhouse, a second flap reveals the eggs beneath the hen. The book has an attractive, open look, with much white space and clear, large type. The animals and farmyard scenes are large, simple forms in bright colors. Unfortunately, Buster and his grandmother are doll-like in their circle heads, dot eyes, and red-spotted cheeks, and do not hold the same appeal. Lift-the-flap books are a gimmick that children love, but these flaps are particularly fragile, and each is hinged in a different place. Eager hands tugging at them will easily result in a cry of ``Oh dear!'' before too long. David Gale, ``School Library Journal''
