About the Author:

James Menk drew upon the classic fairy tales and folk tales he read as a child to pen LILLIAN'S FISH. A graduate of New York's St. Lawrence University with a degree in English and History, Menk is a client manager at a business communications consulting company. He resides with his wife in Brooklyn, New York. LILLIAN'S FISH is his first book.

Louisa Bauer received a Master of Fine Arts in Illustration from Syracuse University, and was granting her MFA in Painting/Art Education from the Rhode Island School of Design. LILLIAN'S FISH is her first book. She lives in Upstate New York.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4?It's Lillian's sixth birthday and, in keeping with the tradition set with her brothers Tim, Tom, Tod, Tad, Ted, Troy, and William, her gift is her very own pet. The arrival of this new creature is of great concern to the other animals; each one is afraid that it will no longer be the only horse, or the only goat, or the only dog, or the only cat, or the only bird, or the only turtle, or the only spider in the family. All are relieved to see Lillian's beautiful rainbow-colored fish, which is quickly accepted into the menagerie. Its sudden disappearance, therefore, is met with considerable dismay and anxiety by the other animals, who quickly set out on a quest to find their missing friend. The siblings then set out on a quest of their own to find their pets. Although the premise is good, the promise is never fulfilled. Both characterization and plot are weak and the repetitive style becomes cumbersome to read. Children who know Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little will be disappointed when they don't find the expected strong characters and story line.?Lynda Short, The Lexington School, KY
