Marisa Núñez is an elementary school teacher and the author of Eleven Adventurous Ladies. "scar Villán won the 1999 National Illustration Prize in Spain for his illustrations for The Little White Rabbit.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-When Camilla goes outside on a blustery day without her tight-fitting trousers and suspenders, a mighty wind blows away seven of her stripes. She cries seven tears for them, and then she is given seven replacements. Snake donates a yellow ring from his tale, the rainbow hands her a bow of silk, a spider knits her a ribbon, and a cicada gives her a violin string. The kindest gift is from her mother, who braids a strand of her own mane into a long thread for the young zebra to wear. This cumulative tale subtly provides opportunities to count and to discuss kindness. While there are a few awkward phrases on the first pages of this import, the remaining text makes for an ideal read-aloud. Villan's imaginative and whimsical paintings are set against a grocery-bag-brown background; the appealing art evokes the bright tempera-paint creations that line kindergarten walls. Share this title with readers who appreciate the silliness of Frank Asch's Monkey Face (Macmillan, 1977; o.p.).
