Mary Murphy is the author-illustrator of picture books How Kind!, Little Owl and the Star, I Kissed the Baby and Panda Foo and the New Friend, as well as the young story book Parrot Park, illustrated by Jessica Ahlberg. Mary lives in Galway, Ireland.Review:
The springtime feeling of UTTERLY LOVELY ONE comes from Mary Murphy's combination of comical animals, deliciously Easter-eggy colors and endearingly affirmative writing. This confection...positively demands that you cuddle the small child to whom you are reading it.
—Wall Street Journal
Infused with warmth and affection, much like the sound of a mother's voice. A nice choice to share at bedtime or cuddled close, this provides a good introduction to animal babies for the youngest children, who will recognize the differing fledglings as being not unlike themselves.
Murphy creates a safe, conflict-free jungle habitat, reassuring children that in a world of strange but lovely things, they remain the loveliest in the eyes of their parents.
