Michael Sampson lives with his family in Campbell, Texas.
Ted Rand lives with his wife, Gloria, on Mercer Island, Washington.
PreSchool-Grade 2?Young football fans will delight in this story about a Super Bowl game, told in the same cumulative pattern as "This Is the House That Jack Built." The author and illustrator combine efforts to capture the aura of the big game complete with the crowd, cheerleaders, and even an appearance by the Goodyear Blimp. Adult followers of the sport and young football fanatics will be amused by Rand's acrylic-and-pencil illustrations as he depicts the Dallas Cowboys and the Kansas City Chiefs squaring off. Besides the familiar blimp, fans will recognize the Super Bowl trophy, the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders, and the fact that the Cowboys' coach bears an uncanny resemblance to Jimmy Johnson, who led the Cowboys to two championships and now coaches the Miami Dolphins. While patterning stories after "This Is the House That Jack Built" is nothing new, putting it in sports vernacular is, and even youngsters who aren't followers of football will enjoy the story's familiar cadence.?Tom S.
