Wendy Watson is the author and illustrator of Hurray for the Fourth of July. She was raised with seven brothers and sisters on a farm in Vermont, where she received her early education and art training from her mother and father. She studied painting in Truro, Massachusetts and at the National Academy of Design in New York City. She is the author-illustrator of more than a dozen children's books, including Thanksgiving at Our House, A Valentine for You, and the Clarion edition of Clement C. Moore's The Night Before Christmas. She lives with her family in Vermont.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Children in a small village are busy finishing their Halloween preparations with the help of family members. Their father helps paint masks; their mother completes costumes; their grandfather assists with the pumpkin carving; their grandmother makes refreshments for the school party that evening. Finally, it is time to dress and meet all the other ghosts and goblins for the festivities. What follows is a trip through a haunted house, supper and a scary story, a parade, and trick or treating around the neighborhood. Watson provides all the fun of the season in her text, while her bright pen-and-watercolor illustrations add another dimension. Full-page and double-page drawings contain conversation balloons of riddles and rhymes. Libraries wishing to add Halloween stories with a not-too-spooky tone will want to consider this one. --Cheryl Cufari, N. A. Walbran Elementary School, Oriskany, NY
