Sharon Phillips Denslow’s books for children include the ALA Notable Book Georgie Lee and All Their Names Were Courage. A former children’s librarian, she lives with her family in snowy Elyria, Ohio.
Cathie Felstead has also illustrated Big Wolf and Little Wolf, by Sharon Phillips Denslow, and An Island Grows, by Lola M. Schaefer. She studied illustration at the Royal College of Art in London and lives in Hertfordshire, England.From Publishers Weekly:
Denslow's (Night Owls) playful picture book will buoy readers' spirits. Little Wolf and his father sing silly bedtime songs to each other until they suddenly hear noises in the bushes behind them. The suspense builds as Little Wolf sees first the ears, and then the eyes and nose ofAhis mother. When Mama Wolf sings her teasing song ("I'm a wolf./ I'm a wolf./ I'm a Big Mama Wolf!/ .../ I hide in the woods just having fun!"), Big Wolf and Little Wolf chase her home to their den. Felstead's (A Circle of Days) watercolors are both expressive and captivating; her chipper paintings evoke Little Wolf's vulnerability, Big Wolf's protectiveness and a "happy tumble" of wolves as they go to sleep. By depicting an affectionate, happy family, the book is not only effective as a bedtime story, but also as a humorous antidote to stories about scary creatures. The songs here are full of fun, whether Big Wolf declaims about using his nose to smell his feet or describes howling at the moon in an old nightshirt. At book's end, children may want to be like the wolves and sing just "one more song/ AARROOOO!" Ages 3-up. (Apr.)
