Stella Blackstone has written many best-selling books for Barefoot, including the popular Bear series and The Animal Boogie, winner of the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal, 2001, (a U.S. award given to outstanding new products that enhance the lives of children). She lives in the Cotswolds with her three children. Clare Beaton is a highly sought-after creator of hand-crafted children's picture books. Her studio is a treasure trove of felt, sequins, buttons, antique fabrics and other materials she uses in her artwork.From Publishers Weekly:
It's not just the cow that's gone astray in Blackstone's (Bear on a Bike; Bear in a Square) mixed-up barnyard. Not one of the animals is where it should be: "There's a pig in the henhouse, with piglets pink and new./ They should be in the pigsty, what shall we do?" But the couple who runs the farm have a solution: "Tell them all it's dinnertime, then it won't be long/ 'til all these naughty animals are back where they belong!" Stitchery wizard Beaton (Mother Goose Remembers) seems right at home from the opening pages. Shedding the tableaux feel of her earlier work, she displays an almost cinematic aesthetic here, composing and cropping her remarkable appliqu‚s of felt, buttons and beads to capture the comic havoc of the farmyard denizens. What's more, the meticulous beauty of her work finds the ideal showcase in the book's full-bleed, double-page spreads. Ages 6 mos.-4 yrs.
