About the Author:

Since the publication of Ernst, Elisa Kleven has gathered further acclaim with such titles as The Puddle Pail (another Ernst story), Sun Bread, and teacher-favorite Abuela by Arthur Dorros. She lives in Albany, California, with her husband, two children, and many happy pets, none of which are crocodiles.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- What child or poet or artist could resist a story that begins "Once upon a time, in a world full of light, trees, bugs, seashells, birds. . ."? Young Ernst is a crocodile who loves to think "What if?" Busy little pictures that sparkle with dots, splotches, and specks exactly reflect his luminous inner world. "What if the honking school bus could sing?" he wishes one day. His questions seem never to stop. On Ernst's birthday his loving family makes him so happy that his real world and his imagined one come together. This fills him with such joy and delight that he can think of no better world to inhabit. The small-scaled illustrations in collage paper effectively let readers into Ernst's imagination. They produce the same kind of enchanted satisfaction one gets from peeping into a Venetian glass paperweight with all its small, brilliant flowers. Older preschoolers, particularly imaginative children, and fans of M. B. Goffstein will love this book. --Anna Biagioni Hart, Sherwood Regional Library, Alexandria, VA
