Virginia Miller's first children's book, Squeak-a-lot (9780744530476) written by Martin Waddell, was runner-up for the 1991 Mother Goose Award. She has since illustrated Sailor Bear (9781844288106), Small Bear Lost, Kate's Giants and Say Please! and several other stories about the bears Bartholomew and George, as well as a novelty book, Where Is Little Black Kitten? (9780744588286) She lives in Bradford-on-Avon.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-- Two bears, one large and one small, tackle toilet training. Little Bartholomew is a contrary toddler who answers "Nah" to everything, including the question,"Do you need your potty?" When big George uses his big voice to say "On your potty!" Bartholomew tries to no avail. Sent out to play, he suddenly realizes it's time. He races in--success! A big hug from George is his reward. Simple text makes the story appropriate for very young children; the bare-bones approach will probably require some additional explanation. The illustrations steal the show; charcoal-and-watercolor drawings are endearing without being saccharine. Bartholomew is the most appealing little bear outside fabric-softener ads. Facial expressions convey volumes; the sequence showing him on his potty is particularly true to life. This is a brief, low-key approach to the subject; for a more thorough treatment, try Joanna Cole's Your New Potty (Morrow, 1989.) --Lucy Young Clem, Evansville Vanderburgh County Public Library, IN
