About the Author:

Henry Cole is the illustrator of many beloved books for children, including his own A Nest for Celeste, Brambleheart, and Bayberry Island. While growing up in Virginia, he enjoyed hiking in the woods and fields around his farm, and making friends with several mice. He still enjoys being outside, where he loves to sketch and write. You can visit Henry online at www.henrycole.net.

Review:

Cole's book is like a quick visit to the natural-history museum each of four triple-page spreads resembles a diorama of old - a snapshot of a particular environment and the creatures it hosts. There are four environments - wood, meadow, stream, pond -- and each is briefly introduced ("I lay down in the middle of the meadow and smelled the sweet red clover. I saw...") before the flap folds out to reveal a tableau. On a final page, Cole ("Jack's Garden, " 1995) notes the 12-15 creatures to be found on each page, a list that is almost identical to the main text but for the numbers that key the items into the pictures. Still, the book conveys the notion of community and coexistence, in artwork that is delightfully fresh. --" Kirkus Reviews" 01/30/98

"I sat in the cool shade, " says the narrator, "and poked my head through the soft fern. I saw..." Unfold the flap for a verdent, triple page acrylic spread in which various woodland creatures are camouflaged. A list of fauna (and an occasional plant or nest) appears unobtrusively to the left, and the nature obseration game repeats for meadow, stream bank, and pond edge. Some items are easy to identify and locate -- water lily, green snake, wood duck family; others are trickier -- which is the spicebush butterfly and which is the mourning cloak butterfly? Answers are provided at the end, of course, and additional double spreads that challenge the reader to discover "who's watching me?" offer an ungraded quiz of identification skills. This is seek-and-find with a mission, and most readers won't discover they've actually learned something until it's too late to back out. --" BBCB, " 2/3/98
