Valeri Gorbachev is the author and illustrator of a number of children's books, both in the United States and Europe, including Nicky And The Big Bad Wolves and Where is the Apple Pie? Mr. Gorbachev immigrated to the United States from the Ukraine in 1991 and now lives with his family in Brooklyn, New York.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Imagination is the key to Nicky's birthday present for his mother. The bunny's siblings each draw a simple picture (a carrot, sun, tree, and flower) to give to her. Nicky, on the other hand, tells an elaborate story to go along with his artwork. His vibrant scribbles look more like modern art than anything in the family garden, but Mother Rabbit loves all of the presents and gives each of her children a hug. The bright-eyed, happy-looking rabbits are slightly reminiscent of Richard Scarry's animals. The watercolor and pen-and-ink illustrations are clear, large, and colorful, making this an enjoyable book to look at, even if the story is a little flat. A serviceable springboard for a drawing session.
