About the Author:

Holly Hobbie has worked as an artist for more than thirty years and is the author of eleven highly acclaimed Toot & Puddle picture books as well as Fanny, Fanny and Annabelle, and Everything but the Horse. She has also written an illustrated memoir, The Art of Holly Hobbie.

Review:

* "Luminous watercolor, pen and ink illustrations. A palette of fresh greens and yellows heralds springtime, while varying frame sizes and perspectives allow readers to view the realistically rendered toad's cross-country ramble from multiple view.... A stunning gem indeed."―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Hobbie clearly delights in painting the arrival of spring, and Gem is its living embodiment."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Hobbie's watercolor with pen-and-ink illustrations are wonderful. The toad is depicted realistically while still imbued with personality and comic expressions, making it an engaging character.... a nearly wordless toad-a-riffic time."―School Library Journal

"The watercolor and ink pictures themselves are a pure and verdant delight.... a welcome reminder of spring and of the truth that, like all wild animals, 'toads are not pets. They want to be free, like everything does.'"―The Bulletin

"Gracefully illustrated."―Booklist

"A shining star in the collection of Holly Hobbie books."―Library Media Connection

Descrizione libro Little, Brown. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Condizione libro: New. Though best known for creating the patchwork character later named for her, Holly Hobbie is also the creator of the Toot & Puddle books and several standalone picture books, including this nearly wordless tribute to the natural world for all ages, illustrated with her gorgeous watercolors. It begins with a note to a granddaughter, reminiscing about spring, followed by a series of sequential images in the life of a toad, who emerges from hibernation after a particularly harsh winter. After surviving numerous hazards in the meadows, lanes, and marshes of a New England farm, he is scooped up by a young girl. But instead of keeping him as a pet, she gives him a name—Gem—and sends him back on his way in the wild. "Luminous watercolor, pen and ink illustrations. A palette of fresh greens and yellows heralds springtime, while varying frame sizes and perspectives allow readers to view the realistically rendered toad's cross-country ramble from multiple view. A stunning gem indeed."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"Hobbie's watercolor with pen-and-ink illustrations are wonderful.
