An extremely popular and prolific Irish author and illustrator, Mary Murphy's titles include I Like It When... and Some Things Change. She lives in Dublin, Ireland.From Booklist:
PreS. This pithy story, illustrated primarily in black and white, catches the excitement of a new baby in the house. White, free-form animal characters set against pure black backgrounds share the news: a baby has arrived. "I saw the baby! Did you see the baby?" the fish asks. Well, yes. The chicken has fed the baby; the butterfly has sung to it; the ant even tickled it. When the mouse asks the duck if it has kissed the baby, the duck answers, "Of course . . . my own amazing baby." On the next two spreads she kisses the bright yellow duckling again, causing it to "Quack! Quack! Quack!" This is simplicity itself, and it is perhaps surprising that Murphy wrings so much emotion out of bare-bones graphic art. But she does, and her book crackles with love, exhilaration, and even sweetness. Everyone will want to kiss this baby--or their own. Ilene Cooper
