Margot Austin was a well-known writer and illustrator of children’s books during the 1940s and 1950s.
David McPhail is the popular illustrator of many picture books, including If You Were My Bunny by Kate McMullan. He has written and illustrated several books, including Edward and the Pirates, Pig Pig Grows Up, and Lost! His life as an author-illustrator began at age two, when he would draw on paper bags. Mr. McPhail lives in New Hampshire.From Booklist:
Poor little Growl Bear is caught between a rock and a hard place; because he can only growl, not talk, the woodland creatures who might become his friends are frightened away. When an irritated owl tells them that he's actually no danger at all, they return to jeer, still thinking him a bully. McPhail lets the situation play out in spacious, peaceful looking glades, illustrating Growl Bear's dilemma with pale, sketchy scenes of upright, unclothed animals on or beneath pliant, sometimes looping limbs of huge old trees. Seeing Growl Bear's tears, Owl at last understands, and gathering up the cub's erstwhile tormentors, explains that he's not aggressive, just too young to talk. Growl Bear never wants for friends again. Little kids who haven't yet bloomed will understand Growl Bear's frustration perfectly. John Peters
