Before turning to children's books, Harvey Stevenson spent twelve years as an advertising art director in New York and in Paris. He has illustrated several picture books for Clarion, including BIG, SCARY WOLF, an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists, which he also wrote. Mr. Stevenson lives with his family in Paris, France.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2. Rose's night terror, composed of shifting shadows, swishing wind, and a dripping faucet, becomes a slavering wolf in the child's mind, and she rushes to her parents' room to escape it. Her dad accompanies her to investigate, suggesting that a wolf would probably much rather be outdoors under the stars than stuck in Rose's room. Together they think of many reasons why the animal would be unhappy inside, such as having to eat his vegetables before getting dessert, having to take a nap after lunch, and having to bathe after paw-painting. He wouldn't even want a bedtime story, preferring to slip out the window to find his friends, Rose decides. This logical, clever approach to calming the child's fears is aptly illustrated in nighttime shades of blue, purple, and green acrylics, with slashing brushstrokes and simple but expressive figures of a ponytailed girl and a definitely unhappy wolf. While many picture books deal with this topic, this one has a new twist.?Patricia Pearl Dole, formerly at First Presbyterian School, Martinsville, VA
