About the Author:

Gretchen Géser drives a hybrid car and creates hybrid artwork, alternating between traditional and digital techniques. A graduate of Smith College, Gretchen also has an M.F.A. in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College. She lives in upstate New York with her husband and daughter and is on the lookout for a black cat.

From Booklist:

A playful city romp comes about when a young girl walking with her mother sees what looks like an engagement ring slip from a man’s pocket. The two pursue the man to return it, but with each turn of the page, there is a new impediment or distraction, and always in increasing numbers. “But four little babies / block the path.” “Then five frisky dogs / spread out like a fan.” And so forth, all the way up to 20. The ring is unobtrusively returned in the nick of time, and the girl and mother move on to a bakery (which just happens to have a giant wedding cake in the window). The somewhat repetitive text is minimal, arranged in the form of free verse and with a vocabulary that will be accessible to readers in early stages of mastering the craft of reading. Géser’s lightly colored watercolors are simple but have just enough detail to realistically depict the city-street action while keeping with the subdued tone of the story. An unusually sweet and unobtrusive counting tale. Preschool-Grade 2. --Randall Enos
