Lillian Hoban's books for children have been working magic for nearly thirty years. Her illustrations can help change an unfamiliar setting-like a museum filled with dinosaurs and whales-into a wondrous adventure, and her words and pictures together can transform chimpanzees and badgers into very real companions for the youngest reader.
Ms. Hoban was born and raised in Philadelphia. Among the first books she illustrated were the ever-popular "Frances" books, and several years later she wrote and illustrated Arthur's Christmas Cookies, thereby ushering in her beloved 'Arthur" series.
In 1967 Ms. Hoban was asked to illustrate Will I Have a Friend? by Miriam Cohen. It was the beginning of an enormously popular collaboration that produced more that a dozen books about Jim, Paul, Danny, Anna Maria, and the rest of the first-grade classcharacters as familiar to children as their own classmates.
Perhaps the key to the unfailing popularity of Ms. Hoban's stories and illustrations is that she's long been a keen observer of children, having had firsthand experience raising four of her own.
Lillian Hoban lives in Connecticut.From Kirkus Reviews:
A third holiday adventure (Silly Tilly and the Easter Bunny, 1987, etc.) about the absent-minded mole and her friends. Tilly ``forgets to remember'' lots of things, such as why February 14 is a special day, how slippery snow is, and that she has cupcakes in the oven. On this Valentine's Day, it's snowing so hard that Tilly's glasses become clouded, so there's more silliness resulting from her poor vision. Her friends Mr. Mail-Mole and Mr. Bunny help her out of these difficulties, and they eventually have a jolly Valentine's celebration. This has inconsistencies for an I Can Read: The dialogue makes use of contractions erratically; commas are occasionally omitted in places where standard usage requires them, e.g., to set off the word too, and at the ends of some lines of poetry. Still, easy-to-read holiday stories are always in demand, and this one is, if unexceptional, fairly harmless. (Fiction. 5-7) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
