Cambria Evans studied graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design. She and her husband, Kari, live and work as freelance illustrators in Brooklyn, where they celebrate Halloween every day.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-Martha Moth has invited her friends Flit and Flora over to celebrate her birthday. At the store, she picks up a fabulous polka-dot scarf, two itchy socks, a misshapen sweater, and two varieties of yarn-a dream feast for a moth. As Martha begins to cook dinner, she samples the scarf-and within seconds has gulped it down entirely. The same thing happens as she prepares the other items. With each one she eats, the moth grows larger. Finally, she is left with two mismatched socks, no dust to sprinkle atop them for baking, and an extremely full belly. All is saved when her friends arrive with a birthday present-her favorite type of dust. The whimsical pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations add just the right amount of cheeriness to this unusual tale. While not an essential purchase, it can be paired nicely with other food-based books, such as David Pelham's Sam's Sandwich (Dutton, 1991) for a cuisine-themed storytime.-Lisa Gangemi Kropp, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
