Award-winning author LISA MCCOURT has written over thirty books for children. She lives with her family in South Florida with a yard full of palm trees that get wrapped in colourful Christmas lights every winter.From Publishers Weekly:
The team behind I Love You, Stinky Face serves up a tale of bedtime shenanigans with a father-daughter spin. "Time to dry off then, Princess Pruney Toes!" a father tells his daughter when she pokes her "shrivelly and wrinkled" big toe out of the tub to show it off. This casual remark sparks the girl's imagination: she zips off to find her princess crown, dubs her father "Sir Daddy" and begins to make royal demands (e.g., she prefers a gown to her usual crocodile jammies). Her father gamely joins in the charade ("Here is an exquisite gown of pure spun gold. May I help you into it?"), and on the final spread, he tucks her in and grants her wish "to be your most special and favorite girl forever." McCourt sprinkles on the sugar a bit heavily, but adroitly conveys the bond between father and daughter as well as the fanciful role-playing between parent and child. Punching up her pastel palette with shades of purple and orange, Moore's exuberant watercolors include warm domestic details such as fuzzy household pets and cozy bedroom slippers. An amiable bedtime outing. Ages 4-8.
