Mary McQuillan has illustrated numerous picture books, including "Bare Bear" by Merriam Moss. In a starred review, School Library Journal praised her art for "Cluck O'clock" by Kes Gray as "colorful, bright, and effectively textured," and "Publishers Weekly" called the book, "something to crow about."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3 Older sister resents the attention that her newborn brother receives. He is fed and carried and excused for his screams and mishaps. She feels jealous, hurt, confused, and angry. When younger brother gets a little bigger, and realizes that older sister can walk in the rain, go to playgroup, stay up late, and go to parties, he feels jealous, hurt, confused, and angry. The universal theme of sibling rivalry, coupled with funny kangaroo characters, will easily capture children's interest. They will secretly taunt, "It's not fair!" and applaud the kangaroo characters' protests. The simple storyline provides amusement and catharsis for children who have experienced their own versions of sibling rivalry. It is complemented with full-page, softly colored, cartoon-like watercolors that capture the characters' emotions and match the light, humorous mood of the story. Comparable to Blume's The Pain and the Great One (Bradbury, 1984), this title will hold the same appeal for a younger audience. Janice L. Amicone, Downington Area School District, Uwchland, Pa.
