Tim Warnes and Jane Chapman live in rural southwest England and share a studio at home with views of open countryside. Mommy Mine is their first collaborative book project since their marriage ten years ago. Tim says, "It was fun playing with words and finding combinations to bounce off each other.

Jane, the best-selling illustrator of Bear Snores On and Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson, enjoyed painting a few of the more obscure animals as well as old children's-book favorites.

PreSchool-K-Many kinds of animal mothers and babies come together in this beautifully illustrated story. "Mommy LOUD/Mommy STOMP" shows two elephants splashing and spraying, followed by "Mommy munch and Mommy chomp!" represented by giraffes and tigers respectively. To indicate how tall the giraffes are, readers must tilt the book and view the page lengthwise. The creatures are painted in bright colors and set against mostly white backgrounds. With their expressive faces, they exude a comfortable sweetness.

This book depicts a special bond in a merry way and will be a lovely supplement to most collections.-Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA
