About the Author:

Mary Jane Auch began her career in children's books by writing novels and has nine to her credit. Her most recent, "Out of Step," was described in School Library Journal as "humorous, realistic, and poignant." She maintains that she always wanted to illustrate children's books, but the ideas that came to her were for older children; that's why she began to write novels. Then in 1991, she had an idea about a chicken, and she thought it would make a good picture book. The result was "The Easter Egg Farm," followed now by "Peeping Beauty." Ms. Auch lives with her husband and two children on a farm near Rochester, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Poulette the hen longs to become a famous ballerina. While her companions gossip and scratch in the garden, she stretches her limbs and dances her heart out. When a fox in talent scout's clothing appears seeking a star for a new production entitled "Peeping Beauty," the other hens try to convince Poulette that it's a trick. However, the star-struck chick is unable to resist a pretty pink tutu and the promise of applause. During the performance, the fox finally reveals his true colors, as well as a mouth full of teeth, and Poulette must think on her feet to save the show--and her life. Both text and artwork convey the humor and drama of this tale. The language is lively and filled with witty phrases and ballet references. Using bright colors and just enough detail, Auch sets her cast of characters against a simple backdrop. Poulette, with her wistful expression and ballet-slipper clad drumsticks, manages to be both graceful and funny, while the fox comes across as just the slightest bit trustworthy. Scenes of the ballet are highlighted by bright pinks and purples, building the excitement of the finale. Moving beyond the traditional chicken-versus-fox scenario, Auch sends a positive message about an inspiring heroine who believes in her dreams and in herself. --Joy Fleishhacker, New York Public Library
