About the Author:

Ruth Brown is one of Britain's best loved creators of children's books. She has created dozens of picture books for Andersen Press and is highly respected as an author and illustrator. She is married to artist Ken Brown and they have two sons.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 As a farmer and a barnful of animals doze in the warm haze, a fly lights on the farmer's nose. His explosive sneeze catapults the fly into a spider's webwhich sets off a series of alarms and chases that ends with his dazed awakeningegg-splattered and harness-drapedto find the annoyed face of his wife and the beaming one of his child, who have come to investigate the ruckus. The British author/illustrator depicts the chain reaction in 12 double-spreads of oversized, almost tactile paintings that glow with sun shafts and straw and outshine the mild mayhem and the brief text that relates it. As in Brown's Dark Dark Tale (Dial, 1981), the uneasy undercurrent of anticipatory harm is offset by light humor and wonderful, tale-telling illustrations that will delight the picture book set.
