This book has quickly become a family favorite--and this new format with padded covers and cardstock pages will become an enduring classic of the genre.
As a poem about a mama fox's unconditional love for her cub, this story describes the many moods of all children--from happy to frightened, bashful to silly, and more--and reassures them of parents' abiding affection and approval. Truly remarkable watercolor illustrations from David McPhail, sensitively wrought and never saccharine, are the perfect complement to Liza Baker's rhythmic, rhyming text.
David McPhail was born on June 30, 1940 in Newburyport, Massachusetts. As a child, David was very imaginative and creative, pretending to be famous heroes and drawing what he imagined. In addition, he was addicted to books from an early age. He attended Vesper George University from 1957-1958 and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School from 1963-1966. He has been an illustrator of children’s books since 1967 and an author of children’s books since 1971. He says he enjoys writing and illustrating as much as he did when he began.
