Andrea Beck is a writer and illustrator. She lives in Unionville, Ontario.From School Library Journal:
reS-Gr 1-Intrigued by what he believes to be a treasure map, Elliot Moose and his stuffed-animal friends dig a very deep hole. All are discouraged when they discover that the map simply shows the location where his friend Lionel plans to plant a new tree. Disappointed, the friends give up digging only to realize that they are trapped in the hole, and it's only through Beaverton's cleverness and creativity that they are able to get out. Beck's choice of language will appeal to readers as they enjoy the pleasing phrases ("When Angel clambered up, the fuzzy tower began to sway. Elliot wibbled, Beaverton wobbled and they all came tumbling down"). Pencil-crayon illustrations are softly textured and resemble a cross between the art in Paulette Bourgeois's "Franklin" series (Kids Can) and Marc Brown's "Arthur" books (Little, Brown). Each spread is framed by a colorful, thin border and consists of a large picture on one side, with nicely spaced text opposite. The moose and his friends' facial expressions help readers experience the emotions of the story. Elliot fans who dig into this newest adventure will discover that even ordinary toys can be treasures.
