John Nickle is the author and illustrator of THE ANT BULLY and TV REX, as well as the illustrator of Judi Barrett's THINGS THAT ARE MOST IN THE WORLD. THE ANT BULLY is scheduled to be released as a Warner Bros. movie next summer and Midway recently bought the video game rights. The author lives in Brooklyn, New York.From Booklist:
Too often alphabet books feel more like vehicles for artists' work than child-friendly offerings. This abecedarian title, by the author-illustrator of The Ant Bully (1999) and TV Rex (2001), avoids that trap by combining fine artwork with a fanciful hunt-and-seek game. Each wordless page features animals and objects whose names begin with a featured letter. A number indicates how many items are buried within the picture. The L page, for example, shows a lobster browsing in a library, a ladybug pushing a lawnmower, a kitschy lamp shaped like a llama, and so on. Nickle's finely rendered scenes are imaginative, humorous, and sophisticated, and he incorporates a free-flowing range of artistic styles that adds energy to the pages. The book's object-counting game, which requires some spelling ability, seems aimed at literate, elementary-school (or older) readers, who will flip to Nickle's appended answer key, but young children just learning to identify letters and objects will also be enthralled by the fantastical groupings of images. A versatile offering with plenty of classroom application. Gillian Engberg
