J. D. Lester is a Southern lady with a big sense of humor and a heart of gold. She lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband, children, and two not-entirely-intelligent golden retrievers. This is her first book.
Hiroe Nakata grew up in Japan, where she was encouraged in her drawing by her grandfather, a painter. She moved to the United States when she was 16 and is a graduate of the Parsons School of Design. She has illustrated numerous children’s books and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
PreS—This charming board book begins, "Mommy calls me Monkeypants...just why I do not know." The spread sports a picture of a little girl in overalls with a monkey and bananas on them. "Mommy calls me Shooting Star...'cause I can fly and glow!" follows, with a mamma and a baby firefly pictured. Through several spreads, each with a different bright background color, animals and insects say their nicknames as they swing, play, chirp, and bounce with their mothers, ending with the girl in bed saying "Mommy calls me Monkeypants...because she loves me so." The pictures capture the lighthearted mood of the couplets exactly and together they create a perfect foray into toddler territory.—Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA
