About the Author:

Suse MacDonald published her first book, Alphabatics, for Simon & Schuster in 1986. This book won a Caldecott Honor in 1987, kicking off a prolific and successful career. Suse continues to write and illustrate books for children, including Fish, Swish! Splash, Dash!: Counting Round and Round, Alphabet Animals: A Slide and Peek Adventure, and Dino Shapes. Suse loves to work in her studio and finds pleasure in encouraging readers to make their own artistic discoveries. Suse lives in Arvada, Colorado, with her husband, Stuart.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K-"In" and "out," "plain" and "fancy," "empty" and "full" are just a few of the opposites featured in this romp through the big top. MacDonald's artwork is brightly colored with crisp contrasts and clean lines. The images, created using cut-paper collages, are matched with two contrary phrases. Each spread can be manipulated in some way (flaps, pull tabs, wheels, foldouts) to demonstrate the concept. The simple presentation and well-designed paper-engineered components are sure to encourage interaction. Clever techniques include a rotating mouth to make a "happy" clown "sad," and a turning wheel makes it appear that the balls a monkey is juggling go "up" and "down." This engaging book will leave youngsters satisfied, yet wanting more.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
