Ruth Brown is the author and illustrator of A Dark, Dark Tale (Dutton and Puffin) and other children's books. She lives in England.From School Library Journal:
PreS Visual vignettes of the English countryside evoke the sights and sounds of a family's autumnal outing to the beaches and hills around Cornwall, as a bouncy labrador puppy's black nose points out the wonders of a first vacation: screeching gulls, crashing waves, a friendly cow, and a not-so-friendly pig. Brown's formidable artistic strength lies in her control of lightfrom a sundrenched seascape to the slanting shadows of a late-afternoon lawnas well as texture: flinty-faced rocks, knobbly bark, and spriggy grass reveal their individuality through distinctive brush strokes. Unfortunately, the text has a stolid qualityits declarative sentences amount to little more than a listing of the day's activities. A visually appealing book that makes one long to visit the original rather than return for a second reading. Kristi Thomas Beavin, Arlington County Public Library, Va.
