Ann James has illustrated many distinctive picture books, including THE MIDNIGHT GANG by Margaret Wild. She lives in Australia.From Publishers Weekly:
Using only the four words contained in the title and limber watercolor, pen-and-ink art, Rubinstein and James affectionately evoke the daily rounds of a bustling household--and teach a short course on clock-watching. Three-fourths of each spread is devoted to an illustration of a busy family made up of two parents, three children, one dog and one cat. The far-left quarter, however, is reserved for a line drawing of an old-fashioned clock (with dog and cat substituting for the traditional cuckoo) to indicate the time, and text that affords a toddler's perspective on the day's sequence: "Dog out, cat in" at seven o'clock, as Dad serves the pooch breakfast on the porch and Mom, holding the cat, forages through the refrigerator; "Dog out, cat in" once more at two o'clock, as Mom, youngest child and cat settle in for a nap while the dog peers in through the window, but 15 minutes later the dog has joined the nappers and the cat leaps out the window ("Dog in, cat out"). Kids will have the concept down--and their thumbs up. Ages 3-6.
