About the Author:

Judy Sierra’s Wild About Books won the E. B. White Read-Aloud Award. She is also the author of Mind Your Manners, B. B.Wolf, Thelonius Monster’s Sky-High Fly Pie, and Beastly Rhymes to Read After Dark. She lives in Oakland, California.

Marc Brown’s illustrations for Wild About Books won him many accolades and honors. His popular books and television show about Arthur the aardvark have brought him fame throughout the world. He lives in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—In quick, quirky rhymed couplets, Sierra relates the story of Sam, who starts reading as soon as his eyes open and never, ever stops—even when he plays basketball. There's a book (or three) out there for all of his various interests, and those he chooses help him with everything from winning bike races to saving the town from a marauding baby giant. To befriend the latter, he pulls out an assortment of classics (including The Cat in the Hat and an Arthur title), some cake, and a cup of tea, all of which work like magic. "And while the giant ate his snack up,/Sam discreetly called for backup." Help arrives in the form of a big brown UPS cargo jet. As an adult, Sam makes the cover of Time when he's awarded a Pulitzer. Sierra's wry acknowledgment of recognizable brands and their value works out okay for grownups—sure, it's obvious product placement and cross promotion. For kids, the familiar bindings depicted in miniature promise a happy "Hey, I know that book!" Brown's gouache illustrations are cheery, and each page pours into the next through the use of subtly repeated background motifs. Polka dots on wallpaper in Sam's nursery evolve into dapples and spots across a wide swath of lawn, reappear as large potato-print circles in a doctor's office, and then shrink into a dizzying spray of blue and purple spots in Sam's dazzled imagination. This is an easy, obvious choice for events with literacy and early learning as their themes.—Catherine Threadgill, formerly at Charleston County Public Library, SC
