About the Author:

As a child, Linda Newbery used to dream of being an author, and used to do a lot of secret writing in her bedroom. It was much later, when Linda was an English teacher, that her first young adult novel, Run with the Hare, was published by HarperCollins. Gradually, she became a full-time author. Sisterland was shortlisted for the Carnegie Award and The Shell House was shortisted for the Carnegie and Guardian book prize. Linda won the Costa Children's Book Prize with Set in Stone. Posy is Linda's first picture book. Catherine Rayner's first book, Augustus and His Smile, was nominated for the V&A Illustration Award, and the Greenaway, and won the Bookstart Best New Illustrator Award. Catherine also exhibits her work at art galleries where her screen prints are very much in demand. Cat lives in Edinburgh.

From Booklist:

Cat owners will see their own pets in Posy. Brown-, black-, and gold striped Posy is described in delightfully rhymed couplets. She is a “whiskers wiper / crayon swiper.” A “sandwich checker / board-game wrecker.” All the descriptions of Posy invite funny depictions of the goings-on, but Rayner keeps the art, rendered in watercolor pencil-crayons, acrylics, and ink, as minimalist as the text, with the focus always on Posy as she romps across creamy vanilla-colored pages. That doesn’t mean opportunities for fun are lost. Posy the “leaf collector” treads under a tree where the fallen leaves caught in her fur give her quite a different appearance, and the kitty fills a two-page spread where she is clearly a “playful wrangler / knitting tangler,” enmeshed in pink yarn. A fine choice for children who are just tuning in to the playfulness of words, this is also an intriguing choice for new readers, who will stretch their skills to spend more time with Posy. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
