9781934706541: Lines That Wiggle

Follow the line that runs through this picture book and turns itself into all kinds of things: the waves above an octopus, the veins in a leaf, the wrappings curling around a mummy, and the trapping threads of a spiderweb. Candace Whitman's catchy rhyming text is brought to life by a host of creepy critters from first-time illustrator Steve Wilson.

About the Author:

A native of Long Island, New York, Candace Whitman studied art history at Yale and went on to earn a master's in art education at NYU. She became interested in children's books while teaching art to kids. Candace is also pursuing a master's of divinity at Princeton Theological Seminary.

When Steve Wilson was a little kid he found real Bigfoot tracks and crop circles. It's true! Since then he has been drawing weird things like UFOs, mythological monsters, aliens, ghosts, animals, cars, superheroes, clouds, and boats. He also works in TV animation design. He lives in Toronto, Canada.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4—Through bouncy verse and lively artwork, this creative collaboration explores the many different ways that lines are used. Whitman's descriptions employ a great range of adjectives and verbs, and Wilson's graphic-style art captures the actions of the lines with a host of colorful animal and monsterlike creatures engaged in various activities. For example, "Lines that twist" (the illustration shows a school bus navigating along a serpentine road), "lines that sway" (blades of grass bend gracefully in the wind), "lines that swish the flies way" (a cowboy-boot-wearing horse dispatches insects with its tail). Lines can also "curve" and "curl" (as in a mummy's unwinding bandages), "swirl" (from a whale's spout), and "zigzag" (across a rainstorm sky). The book's design showcases specific descriptors in a cursive font that uses the textured glitter to maximum effect. This emphasis makes the connection between word and art even more striking. Children will enjoy this book on many levels. It can be read independently for pleasure or used in a variety of ways in the classroom. Art teachers in particular will find this a wonderful addition to their curriculum.—Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA
