Tony Ross was born in London in 1938. His dream was to work with horses but instead he went to art college in Liverpool. Since then, Tony has worked as an art director at an advertising agency, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, a teacher and a film maker - as well as illustrating over 250 books!From School Library Journal:
PreS?A humorous look at manners that's sure to appeal to preschoolers. The book opens as the Little Princess screams, "I want my dinner!" The picture of her red-faced temper tantrum, complete with silverware flying through the air, shows more than the text reveals. Next, she demands her potty (while squeezing toothpaste all over the cat). Finally, she remembers to say the magic word when she requests her teddy bear. Then, on a walk, she encounters a big, red-nosed blue Beastie. He pitches a fit about wanting his dinner, and the Little Princess tells him to say please. The smiling, yellow-crowned child reminds him to say thank you, too. The simple text combined with exuberant, colorful watercolors show Ross at his best. Any child who has been reminded to be courteous will appreciate the cheerful, comical illustrations.?Janet M. Bair, Trumbull Library, CT
