Lucille Clifton, poet, storyteller, college professor, mother of six and grandmother, is author of many books for young readers. Eight of her picture books feature Everett Anderson, including Everett Anderson's Goodbye (a Coretta Scott King Award winner), Everett Anderson's Nine Month Long, Everett Anderson's Christmas Coming, and One of the Problems of Everett Anderson.
Ann Grifalconi, a native of New York, is the author and illustrator of the Caldecott Honor Book The Village of Round and Square Houses and Darkness and the Butterfly. As an illustrator, she has collaborated with many writers on several picture books, including six Everett Anderson titles.
This collection of brief verses, first published in 1977, chronicles Everett's anxieties when his favorite twosome himself and Mama attracts a new neighbor who comes calling for Mama. With the sparest of lines, Clifton conveys an array of emotions, as do Grifalconi's two-tone drawings. Ages 4-8.
