Author Info
Lois Ehlert
Lois Ehlert was encouraged to explore her creativity by her parents and eventually attended the Layton School of Art and the University of Wisconsin. Ehlert started illustrating books for children early in her career but, unhappy with their final production quality, she stopped and focused on graphic design work. Ehlert returned to the world of children's book illustration only after she felt that publishers had begun to pay more attention to design and production. Her book COLOR ZOO was named a Caldecott Honor Book in 1990.
When Alma Flor Ada was a young girl, she was surrounded by stories: each day her grandmother and an uncle invented interesting tales to entertain her with, and at bedtime her father would spin fables he created just for her. Because Alma's grandmother thought the 3-year-old was ready to learn to read, she began teaching her by writing the names of flowers and plants in the dirt. Alma says that as she grew older, she remembered that experience and felt that there was a strong connection between the act of reading and nature's beauty--that's why her family could always find her reading in a tree or writing by a river. Since family storytelling was such a large part of her childhood, two of Alma's books, WHERE THE FLAME TREES BLOOM and UNDER THE ROYAL PALMS, are story collections based on her childhood memories. A fun fact: her book THE UNICORN OF THE WEST was based on a bedtime story her father told her.
From the Publisher
Annotation The cat is outside prowling for his lunch, and those birds sure look good! But they're quicker than he is, so all he gets is a mouthful of feathers--and the reader of this colorful picture book gets 12 common birds, pictured and identified. This is a Spanish language version of the book.
Editors Note An escaped housecat encounters 12 birds in the backyard but fails to catch any of them and has to eat feathers for lunch. Full color.
