Sam Williams is a popular author and illustrator for the very young. One of his most recent books, Cold Little Duck, Duck, Duck, has met with great acclaim, reviews and sales in the US and UK. Sam is married with three children and a host of other animal life! Illustrator: Mique grew up mostly in London, although her most memorable childhood years were spent in Japan, during the ages of 7-10. She studied at Norwich School of Art & Design, then completed a masters at University of Brighton, during which time she became very interested in children's books.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–Saddened by events in the news, Williams pours out lyrics to express his feelings on peace. "On the street,/when you meet,/when you eat,.../talk peace." This is a difficult concept to convey to a young audience, and the writing is unremarkable. Even the attractive illustrations, which are colorful and primitive in appearance, do little to enhance the abstract message. On the other hand, the circular tops of the trees and the rounded bodies on bears give some mellowness to the vague idea. The large-print, red text uses words that most first graders will recognize. However, with the spate of books on peace lately, including Vladimir Radunsky's What Does Peace Feel Like? (S & S, 2004) and Todd Parr's The Peace Book (Little, Brown, 2004), libraries probably don't need this one.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
