Roni Schotter is the acclaimed author of Captain Bob Sets Sail, also illustrated by Joe Cepeda; Captain Snap and the Children of Vinegar Lane, winner of the Parents' Choice Award; Nothing Ever Happens on 90th Street; Dreamland; and Hanukkah!, which won the National Jewish Book Award. In addition to writing, she visits elementary schools to share with children her love of writing and her belief in the importance of imagination.
Ms. Schotter lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, with her husband and son, Jesse.From Booklist:
K-Gr. 2. Schotter makes cleaning one's room seem less of a chore in this colorfully illustrated story of a boy who imagines he's a pilot while he works. Mom plays along as "Control Tower." When it's time for Bob to be finished, she speaks: "Control Tower to Captain Bob, Time to land. Is the runway clear?" The oil paintings show the boy and his room from various perspectives, creatively combining fantasy and reality. Children will chuckle when socks are retrieved and tossed in a dresser drawer as Captain Bob flies "a careful course over unidentified low-lying objects, scooping them up in his Supersonic Rescue Cup." Cleaning up may not be most kids' favorite activity, but tempering the chore with imagination will certainly make it more fun. Diane Foote
