John Butler is known and highly respected for his wildlife picture books. He has illustrated six titles for Puffin, all by Theresa Radcliffe. John has also written and illustrated WHOSE BABY AM I? for Puffin, a companion volume to IF YOU SEE A KITTEN.Review:
"The delicately detailed illustrations are quite wonderful... Situated against a plain creamy background, each intricately drawn creature is an exquisite naturalistic rendering, requiring no extra fanfare. Perfect for preschoolers and younger, Butler's tale easily lends itself to group read aloud settings, with each successive reading sure to become more riotous as the children become familiar with their responses." ?Kirkus Reviews
"Butler invites youngsters to revel in the reactions to 10 splendidly rendered portraits... Children, especially those on the younger end of the target audience, will likely embrace this handsome book's exhortations..." ?Publishers Weekly
"Although words are minimal, the illustrations, primarily in gold and brown tones across glossy spreads, are irresistible. This title will have particular appeal for toddlers." ?School Library Journal
"The best part of this book is the soft, realistic, luminescent illustrations, which lead readers through the questions and humorous answers." ?Observer Dispatch
