Rod Clement is a well-known author, illustrator and cartoonist. He has written and illustrated Grandpa's Teeth and Just Another Ordinary Day and illustrated Edward the Emu and Edwina the Emu, both written by Sheena Knowles. He is also a caricaturist for several Australian newspapers. Mr. Clement lives in Sydney, Australia.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3. A clever, creative, and funny picture book from Australia. A laconic text tells of frizzy-haired Amanda's ordinary day while hilarious illustrations belie every word. Her alarm at 6:30 a.m. is a stout Oriental potentate striking a huge gong; she is driven to school by "the oldest person on the block," an elderly dinosaur in a dress; her science teacher is a huge, bug-eyed insect; "lunch from the cafeteria" consists of a banquet table with a butler dispensing immense hamburgers; her mother's off-road vehicle is an elephant. There's more inventive fun on every bold, double-page spread. Amanda, her family, and her schoolmates are unfazed by all these marvels, maintaining deadpan facial expressions at all times. The brightly colored artwork cleverly combines expressive, slightly caricatured humans with crisply realistic backgrounds and creatures.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
