About the Author:

Melinda Melton Crow has been a first grade teacher for 15 years and a Reading Recovery teacher for nine years. She enjoys teaching children to read and getting to know each student and his or her family. When she's not teaching or writing, Melinda enjoys traveling, gardening, and nice summer weather. Melinda has two wonderful boys with her husband, John. They also have two dogs, Buddy and Lucky. She currently lives with in Plymouth, Minnesota.

When Patrick Girouard was growing up, his teachers constantly scolded him for drawing monsters instead of paying attention in class. Many years later, he put all of that practice to good use when his first book assignment turned out to be about Halloween! Now he lives in Indiana and gets to draw all day. His work can be found on greeting cards, games, toys, puzzles, books, odd scraps of paper, the margins of newspapers, and his Mom's refrigerator door. Patrick loves coffee, has the strength of ten men, and hates writing about himself in the third person. Oh, and he was once struck by lightning and magnetized for a week.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—In Little Wheels, Blue Truck is told by a fire truck and a garbage truck that it is too little to help them. Then Yellow Truck reassuringly asks for help with a tree. The few words on each spread are superimposed on bright cartoon illustrations that supplement the text. While the story has instant appeal because of the characters, readers are likely to feel confused toward the end—how Yellow Truck and Blue Truck actually work together is unclear. In the second title, Snorp, a window washer, instantly grabs readers' attention with his unique monster characteristics: three eyes and three feet and a long tongue that dangles out of his mouth. Given a day off for being an excellent worker, he asks a friend without eyes to teach him to snowboard. Children will enjoy the nonsensical illustrations. In the third title, Rico's friend is a robot. After they go tubing, snowboarding, skiing, and sledding, Robot turns himself into a bobsled and they race down the hill together. "'We don't need all that stuff,' says Robot. 'Not when we have each other,' says Rico." This simple story is a good addition to easy-reader collections. All three books have short, simple sentences in large type and bright, full-color art.—Lora Van Marel, Orland Park Public Library, IL
