Lisa Campbell Ernst has written and illustrated many popular children's books, including Goldilocks Returns, her own version of Little Red Riding Hood, and Stella Louella's Runaway Book, which School Library Journal called "a great story for reading out loud."
Lisa says, of writing Hannah Mae's story, "Growing up in Oklahoma, I was fascinated with legends of the West -- especially tales of fearless cowgirls. At slumber parties we relished in telling ghost stories about Belle Starr, a cowgirl bandit who was said to have lived in the area. I was certainly not a fearless cowgirl, and I didn't have a horse or cattle, but I did have a hamster -- and a rather overactive imagination. This was the beginning of Hannah Mae."
Lisa Campbell Ernst lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her husband, Lee, and their daughters, Elizabeth and Allison.From Booklist:
Gr. 1-2. Droll pastel, ink, and pencil artwork and Old West humor from the halcyon days of TV cowpokes are the hallmarks of this outlandish picture book. When Hannah Mae is born to her staid, city-slicker parents, her "Uncle Coot from way out West" sends her a peachy pink cowgirl hat. From her earliest years, Hannah Mae studies Cowpoke Monthly and rides her pony, Sassafras, in the park, and she practices herding and feeding (with hamsters, as there are no convenient cows in the city). When she and Sassafras take the train to Uncle Coot's ranch, Uncle puts Hannah Mae to work doing chores--but no herding just yet. Her expertise with hamsters eventually comes in handy in a most unexpected way, providing a career for herself and a new role for her family. Goofy cowboy lingo, pretty Popsicle colors, and animals and people with similar saucer-eyed expressions are pleasing elements that will help round up an audience. Great for reading aloud.
