Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey have illustrated many books together -- he draws the outlines and designs the pages; she paints the illustrations. Aruego, a native of the Philippines, was a lawyer before becoming an illustrator, and now lives in New York City. Dewey was born in Chicago and also lives in New York City.From AudioFile:
What better choice for read-along audio recordings than Easy Readers? New readers love to read alongŠand reading along builds confidence and reading skills. The key to success, of course, is to find superior stories and record them in kid-friendly ways with attention to the nuances of music, voice and sound effects found in the best audiobooks. Accolades go to Live Oak Media for doing just that! The subject is friendship in this Easy Reader read-along, a favorite with the kindergarten through grade two crowd; the audio format enhances the appeal. Lively music introduces the book and serves as an interlude for the titles with individual chapters. Sparse but judicious use of sound effects--the hammerings and sawings of Mitchell building his house "two weeks away"--enhance the readings. The book is read with faultless pacing and voice and it escapes the inordinately slow narration and deliberate diction some read-alongs employ. Mitchell's husky orations contribute to an appealing cast of characters. New readers and pre-readers alike will delight in listening to these favorite stories independently. T.B.
