Barbara Williams is the renowned author of numerous books for children. She lives in Salt Lake City, USA. Doug Cushman is the illustrator of a number of children's books. He lives with his family in California.From Booklist:
K-Gr. 2. Children who sometimes struggle to make themselves understood by adults will sympathize with poor Albert the turtle, who is stuck in bed with a toothache-- despite not having any teeth. Albert's parents accuse him of lying, but wise Grandmother Turtle believes him immediately. Her only question, "Where do you have a toothache?" It turns out Albert's ache is really in his toe! With a little care from Grandmother, he's soon all better. Cushman's ink, watercolor, and colored pencil illustrations are just right for this new vesion of William's 1974 book, portraying a comically familiar family group at home: toys litter the floor of Albert's room, Father sports a tie around the neck of his turtle shell, and Albert's siblings make faces when they are served cricket wings for dinner. A refreshing, gentle lesson--for the grownups this time. Diane Foote
