About the Author:

Katya Arnold decided to become an artist, inspired by the examples of her grandmother, an artist and costume maker, and her great-uncle, a children's book author. Born is Moscow, she studied art and illustration at Moscow Polygraphic Institute, then taught at Moscow Polygraphic Institute, then taught at Moscow University before moving to the United States. Katya Arnold has created several children's books, including "Meow!", "Duck, Duck, Goose?", and "The Adventures of Snowwoman". She lives in New York with her family.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Arnold retells two stories by Vladimir Suteev that were previously translated by Mirra Ginsburg as The Chick and the Duckling (Aladdin, 1988) and Three Kittens (Crown, 1973; o.p.). The texts are very much the same. In "Me Too," Chick copies all of Duckling's actions, until his friend goes swimming, whereupon Chick learns that following suit is not always a good idea. In "Three Kittens," a black, a gray, and a white kitten all turn white when they jump into a canister of flour while chasing a mouse. Then they turn black when they dive into a dirty pipe, and return to their own colors when they jump into a pond after a fish. The striking illustrations are rendered in acrylics on acetate with watercolor backgrounds. Everything is outlined in black for an effect similar to woodcuts, resulting in a handsome picture book. If libraries no longer have Ginsburg's books, this one is a good substitute.
