Ruth Galloway has always known she wanted to be an artist. She has designed greeting cards and done text book illustrations. She also wrote and illustrated the Tiger Tales books "'Fidgety Fish"' and "'Smiley Shark"'. Ruth lives in Oxon, England, with her family.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K–Nipper the Crab hates his claws, which seem to get in the way when he is playing with the other sea animals. However, the appendages prove to be the only thing that can save Octopus when he gets tangled in seaweed. All of the creatures are friendly and welcoming, even when Nipper causes chaos in their games. Galloway has a smooth style–the story floats along without noticeable bumps; the onomatopoeia and alliteration, along with the brightly colored, attractive illustrations, make this a good choice for storytimes. And the final lesson–that everyone has a special gift–will be reassuring to youngsters who may feel a little clumsy, too.–Susan E. Murray, Glendale Public Library, AZ
