About the Author:

Tana Hoban's photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and in galleries around the world. She has won many gold medals and prizes for her work as a photographer and filmmaker. Her books for children are known and loved throughout the world.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Tana Hoban adds number three to her textless collections of photographs with little square cut outs that allow only a teasing glimpse of texture to activate children's imaginations (Look Again! Macmillan, 1971 and Take Another Look Greenwillow, 1981). These nine objects are in full color in a larger format, and there is an enhanced sensitivity to the composition of each photograph. But with all the world to capture on film, it is unfortunate that there is no theme, or any ensnaring visual logic to the choices of subjects. Instead children see some animals (the elephant again, of course), a couple of things from the vegetable kingdom, and a couple of manufactured objects. Nor is there a pattern to the way the two photographs that identify each object are exploited. For some, the second picture shows the object in use (boy smells rose; man plays guitar; pumpkin becomes jack-o-lantern). But the lamb doesn't become a rug nor the collie even an active sheep herder. In other words, Hoban missed much of the poetry possible in both choosing and organizing her work. What she presents in her white-framed photographs on glossy black pages are good examples of the genre (the sensuousness of the O'Keeffe-ish rose is particularly strong). By now readers expect more of her. Kenneth Marantz, Art Education Department, Ohio State University, Columbus
