Mr. Gorbachev immigrated to the United States from the Ukraine in 1991 and now lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K–A hurricanelike wind leaves a pink chapeau ownerless, and a concerned turtle searches for its wearer at the houses of friends Mouse, Rabbit, Beaver, Crocodile, and Elephant. Full-spread illustrations in watercolor with pen and ink offer a faithful depiction of Turtle's tireless search. Repetition of the question, "Is it your hat?," and a steady stream of "It is not mine" responses encourage sight recognition of words as the text progresses to the announcement of the owner's identity. While the predictable plot lacks excitement, and readers might guess the owner by the hat's size, the story provides a comfortable ending for younger children.–Mary Elam, Forman Elementary School, Plano, TX
