Carole Lexa Schaefer is the author of many acclaimed picture books for children, including "Down in the Woods at Sleepytime," illustrated by Vanessa Cabban; "The Bora-Bora Dress," illustrated by Catherine Stock; and "Big Little Monkey," illustrated by Pierre Pratt. Carole Lexa Schaefer lives on Camano Island, Washington.
Galia Bernstein was born and raised in Israel and moved to New York to study at Parsons The New School for Design. In addition to illustrating picture books, she also works as a textile print artist. Galia Bernstein lives in Brooklyn.
There's a Horton-esque quality about Bernstein's Elephant throughout, and both he and Monkey exude personality. This achievement in visual characterization is matched by Schaefer's text, which employs controlled word choices and embeds careful repetition in support of the emerging reader. A welcome addition to the early-reader shelf.
Schaefer's rich and witty dialogue will charm and amuse early chapter-book readers. The digitally created cartoonlike characters are brimming with emotion and often surrounded by distinctive patterns of sunshine, leaves, and grasses. Children comfortable with Arnold Lobel's FROG AND TOAD ARE FRIENDS (HarperCollins, 1970) and Wong Herbert Yee's UPSTAIRS MOUSE AND DOWNSTAIRS MOLE (Houghton, 2005) will enjoy reading about Monkey and Elephant.
