About the Author:

Diane de Groat says that the most difficult part of writing and illustrating this book was deciding what the correct title should be. I polled everyone I know, including teachers and students all over the country," she says. "And everyone disagreed on whether the jingle's words were 'you belong in a zoo' or 'you live in a zoo.' The opinions were split right down the middle, so I decided to use the words that I grew up singing."

Diane deGroat is the illustrator of over ninety children's books and the author-illustrator of the first two books about Gilbert, Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet and Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink, an IRA-CBC Children's Choice. Kirkus Reviews noted of the latter, "DeGroat pens a sympathetic took at the small hurts in life and the importance of second chances."

Ms. deGroat lives in Amherst, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Gilbert the possum is too busy daydreaming about what Santa will bring and participating in seasonal activities to think about his homework in this beginning reader (HarperCollins, 2008) by Diane DeGroat. After ice skating, decorating the Christmas tree, and making cookies, Gilbert realizes that he has forgotten to do his homework. At school the next day, Gilbert and his friend hastily build a snowman in an effort to creatively complete the assignment. He only gets half a smiley face, but is given the chance to finish his assignment successfully the next day. The crystal clear female narration is complemented by a male performing the character voices and minimal sound effects. Page-turn signals are optional. Children will be able to follow along easily in the book and peruse the watercolor artwork.—Terri Crowe, Daviess County Public Library, Owensboro, KY
