Sue Heap has illustrated a number of children's books, including the Smarties Book Prize Gold Award-winning "Cowboy Baby", its sequel, "Cowboy Kid", and "Let's Play Fairies". She lives in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.From School Library Journal:
PreS–Though it lacks the internal cohesion and satisfying conclusion of Four Friends Together (Candlewick, 2003), this follow-up tale nonetheless holds lots of appeal, thanks to Heap's bold, playful acrylic illustrations and lovable characters. Florentina, a great big flowery bear; Rachel, a rabbit; Seymour, a sheep; and a little girl named Mary Clare enjoy the outdoors. When a butterfly lands on Florentina's foot, she calls everyone over to see it, but it flies away before they have a chance. The companions race around the garden chasing it, but the butterfly only comes to see them once they sit still and remain quiet–and by then, Florentina has disappeared. All ends happily, however, as she appears just in time to serve lemonade to her friends and greet the butterfly, which lands on her nose. The interactions among the characters are real and caring, and the simple text and colorful illustrations will work well in toddler storytimes.–Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
