Janet Lord earned her BA in graphic arts and advertising from Concord University and now works as a graphic designer. She also wrote HERE COMES GRANDMA! and ALBERT THE FIX-IT MAN, both illustrated by her sister Julie Paschkis. She lives in North Wales, Pennsylvania.From School Library Journal:
Pres-Grade 1—Catkin is on the prowl, ever alert to the sounds and movements that intrigue cats so much. Young children will delight in finding the critters hidden in Paschkis's eye-popping, folk-style artwork before the calico does, and they will enjoy imitating the sounds each animal makes. As the story progresses, Paschkis also includes stylized images of each creature in the bright orange and yellow borders on each spread, another opportunity for young ones to search, point, and name. Lord's story line includes predictable text that can help children tell the story and describes the various ways the feline moves. "Catkin creeps/explores/hops/jumps/leaps/races/pounces" serves as an invitation to youngsters to act out the subtle differences in the verbs. There are so many ways to engage with this book that multiple readings are in order.—Maggie Chase, Boise State University, ID
