Gavin Bishop is the author of Chicken Licken and Mrs. McGinty and the Bizarre Plant, both published by Oxford. In 1982, he was a prizewinner in the prestigious Noma Concours illustrators competition held in Japan. He lives in New Zealand.
PreSchool-Grade 2. In this winning tale, Little Rabbit dreams of being a sailor. Never having seen the sea, he can only draw on his imagination and his family's descriptions of it. His grandmother says it is "wild and quiet....A bit of both"; his father says it is "blue and wide....Never ending"; and his uncle tells him it is "dark and salty....Like cider vinegar." When Little Rabbit tells a seagull of his dreams, the bird brings him a seashell, which allows him to experience everything his family has described. The imagery is wonderfully fitting. Pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations in many shades of blue call to mind the ocean, as does Little Rabbit garbed in a sailor suit with his toy sailboat tucked under his arm. The layout is easy on the eye: some spreads feature full-, art on the left balanced by a block of text on a white facing page while others feature full-bleed, double-page paintings. The combination of design and short text makes this title especially accessible to beginning readers. While it will also be popular with preschoolers, it will make a nice introduction to the study of imagery and adjectives for slightly older students.?Maura Bresnahan, Topsfield Town Library, MA
