The Gingerbread Boy Big Bookby Paul Galdone
Synopses & Reviews
Frogs hop. Rabbits hop. Kangaroos hop. Cows hop. Cows hop?! No they don't, of course, and so begins the simple repetitive pattern of this clever book. From the cow that doesn't hop to the giraffe that doesn't crawl, animals on brightly colored page after page offer up giggles galore and a delightfully silly look at the way some creatures do--and don't--get around. When the time comes to guess who hops and flies and slithers and swims and crawls, observant young readers just might know the answer!
Cows hop . . .
Cows hop? Cows do many things but they don't hop. Animals facts meet pure silliness in this laugh-out-loud book.
A simple trip to the market turns into utter chaos! Whatand#8217;s a poor shopper to do when her groceries have a mind of their own? Anne Mirandaand#8217;s rhythmic and raucous text and Janet Stevensand#8217;s energetic multimedia illustrations come to life as never before in this new big book!
About the Author
Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
