About the Author:

Stephanie Calmenson is the author of many acclaimed books for children. They have been called "marvelous" (Publishers Weekly), "lyrical" (School Library Journal), and "sweet, funny, and right on the mark" (ALA Booklist). Her books include Dinner at the Panda Palace, a PBS Storytime Book; Welcome, Baby! Baby Rhymes for Baby Times; Good for You! Toddler Rhymes for Toddler Times; and Kindergarten Kids: Riddles, Rebuses, Wiggles, Giggles, and More!



Ursula Nordstrom, director of Harper’s Department of Books for Boys and Girls from 1940 to 1973, was arguably the single most creative force for innovation in children’s book publishing in the United States during the twentieth century. Considered an editor of maverick temperament and taste, her unorthodox vision helped create such classics as Goodnight Moon, Charlotte’s Web, Where the Wild Things Are, Harold and the Purple Crayon, and The Giving Tree.

Mary Chalmers the illustrator of many books for young readers, including the I Can Read Book Marigold, Grandma on the Town by Stephanie Calmenson, and Easter Parade, which she also wrote. She lives with her three cats in Greenbelt, MD.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In the spirit of Minarik's Little Bear, four easily read chapters by the author of The Principal's New Clothes (1989). Little bunny Marigold's indulgent grandma buys her a hat; in the park, the wind blows the hat off and the bread for the ducks the wrong way, until Marigold makes the wind her ``friend'' by going to the other side of the pond; she gently tests the boundaries of good manners in a coffee shop; and the two stop for a coin- operated photo on the way home. Adroitly, Calmenson brings in delicious details--e.g., the perfect hat needs one adaptation: slits for ears, neatly made with the saleslady's scissors. The affectionate, realistic interplay between the grandparent and the good little bunny is charming, as are Chalmers's wide-eyed, wonderfully expressive characterizations; Marigold hiding her face in Grandma's bosom after she spills her milk is the quintessence of childish embarrassment. An endearing introduction to someone who could become a real favorite. (Easy reader. 4-8) -- Copyright 1994, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
