B.G. Hennessy grew up in Wantagh on Long Island, NY. At the University of Wisconsin in Madison, she majored in fine art and learned how to design, print and bind handmade books. She also took courses in Children’s Literature. The combination of form and content in the picture book format fascinated her and after graduation she headed for NYC where she worked for 17 years in children’s book publishing as a designer and art director. She is the author of Road Builders and The First Night, as well as many books starring Corduroy, the loveable toy bear created by Don Freeman. She now lives with her family in Arizona.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1–In the attic, beloved Christmas tree ornaments, some of which Grandma Lily has had since childhood, wonder why the woman doesn't take them down and hang them on the tree, as she always has. When it becomes clear that Lily is gone, the ornaments hold their own celebration in a dollhouse, but it just isn't the same. Luckily, Lily's son arrives with his own children, and the ornaments are part of a family once again. The oil paintings, which depict each ornament in careful and loving detail, are the strength and heart of this book. Despite some flaws (Jack seems to grow from a little boy to a man with kids of his own in just one year, and the tenses switch from past to present and back again), the simple story has quiet, old-fashioned charm.–E. M.
