Born in Belfast, Martin Waddell was an aspiring football player for many years, before turning his hand to writing. He is now widely regarded as one of the greatest living children's writers, and has over 220 published titles to his name. He is perhaps best known for Owl Babies, illustrated by Patrick Benson and Farmer Duck, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury; as well as the 1989 Kurt Maschler Award-winning The Park in the Dark and the Little Bear series, both illustrated by Barbara Firth. In 2004, Martin received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his lasting contribution to children's literature, the highest career recognition available to a writer or illustrator of children's books. He lives in Newcastle, County Durham.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- The narrator shares her family album with readers, and highlights moments of passage from her infancy to adulthood. The first and last illustrations, similarly posed, complete a cycle. At first, the storyteller is herself a baby, looking up to her mother, father, two other children, and Uncle Tom. Finally, she takes her place with the giants as a new mother. This British import is rather unexciting and episodic, using the metaphor of giants rather than a plot to hold it together. However, Dale's watercolor and pencil illustrations embellish ordinary events delightfully in this chronicle of life in one relaxed, middle-class, contemporary family. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Lib . , Alexandria, VA
