Author Info
Denise Fleming
Denise Fleming's career as an artist began when she was in the third grade and one of her paintings was reproduced on the cover of a magazine for teachers. Her career in children's publishing began in 1984 when she illustrated Alice Low's ALL THROUGH THE TOWN. The first book she both wrote and illustrated was 1991's IN THE TALL, TALL GRASS. Many of Fleming's picture book illustrations are "pulp paintings" which are created by forcing colored cotton pulp through hand-cut stencils. Her 1993 work IN THE SMALL, SMALL POND was named a Caldecott Honor Book.
Praise
"Visual delight and solid natural history aside, the joy of the story is the way in which it incorporates childlike attempts to delay bedtime and a beautifully turned, humorous ending. A perfect fit for the audience."
"Fleming's artistry with cotton rag fibers tinted in deep, autumnal colors provides a visual feast chock-full of the season's trademark richness laid out on handmade paper."
From the Publisher
Annotation A bear, a snail, a skunk, and a turtle know winter is coming, but try to put off their hibernation so they can see what that season is like. As it gets colder and colder, the animals get more and more sleepy. Will they ever be able to experience winter for themselves? Color illustrations accompany the text.
First Line Bear sniffed once, she sniffed twice. "I smell winter in the air," said Bear. "It is time to crawl into my cave and sleep. But first I must tell snail."
Editors Note A story that's sure to warm any heart in any season. Bear knows that it is time for her winter nap, but first she must tell Snail. All of the animals try to put off going to sleep as long as possible so that they can see, smell, hear, or taste the signs of the impending season of hibernation. Full color.
