Born in Belfast, Martin Waddell was an aspiring football player for many years, before turning his hand to writing. He is now widely regarded as one of the greatest living children's writers, and has over 220 published titles to his name. He is perhaps best known for Owl Babies, illustrated by Patrick Benson and Farmer Duck, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury; as well as the 1989 Kurt Maschler Award-winning The Park in the Dark and the Little Bear series, both illustrated by Barbara Firth. In 2004, Martin received the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his lasting contribution to children's literature, the highest career recognition available to a writer or illustrator of children's books. He lives in Newcastle, County Durham.Jennifer Eachus is an award-winning illustrator who lives in France with her husband, two dogs and two cats. She loves to explore the Lot region, which she records with her digital camera. "It is an extremely interesting part of France," she says, "with many visual delights and things of wonder to behold."From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-Waddell's fluid, rhythmic text meshes with Eachus's luminescent colored-pencil illustrations to form a stunning, moonlit mother/daughter jaunt to the beach. Silver-edged, often backlit, almost impressionistic images form just the right magical touch to convey both the big and small picture. The parent/child relationship depicted is especially rewarding. The mother is caught up in her daughter's serendipitous behavior-splashing, making footprints-but always allows it to be the child's experience while she provides safety, stability, and serenity. From the first exuberant run into the waves to the final warm, exhausted sleep on Mama's lap, "I'll always remember just Mama and me and the night that we walked by the big big sea." The large format and spare narrative insure success with a group, but the intimate nature of the story demands special one-on-one reading.
