About the Author:

Stuart J. Murphy is a visual learning specialist. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, he has a strong background in design and art direction. He also has extensive experience in the world of educational publishing. Drawing on all these talents, Stuart J. Murphy brings a unique perspective to the MathStart series. In MathStart books, pictures do more than tell stories; they teach math.

Stuart J. Murphy and his wife, Nancy, live in Boston.



Sylvie Wickstrom is the author and illustrator of several books for children. I Love You, Mister Bear was inspired by Ms. Wickstrom's daughter, Sosha, who once rescued her own Mister Bear from a local yard sale. The original Mister Bear now keeps Ms. Wickstrom company in her studio while she writes and illustrates her picture books.

Sylvie Wickstrom grew up in France and now lives in Albany, New York.

From Kirkus Reviews:

PLB 0-06-027621-5 paper 0-06-446724-4 Room For Ripley (32 pp.; $15.95; PLB $15.89; paper $4.95; Sept. 30; 0-06-027620-7; PLB 0-06-027621-5; paper 0-06- 446724-4) Murphy (see review, above) ably conveys the role of volume in measurement for this MathStart entry, but the story he uses as a vehicle is dull. Carlos wants to buy a fish, which he has named Ripley, from the local pet shop. His sister Ana helps him prepare a home for the guppy by filling a gallon fishbowl with cups of water, all 16 of them. The insipid text isn't helped by the pictures; while Wickstrom does a good job using a pyramid format to illustrate liquid measurement, her characters's features are frozen and without expression. More interesting for readers will be to deploy the tips at the end of the book intended to enhance their understanding of capacity, e.g., estimating volume and comparing the liquid amounts in various containers.
