Editorial Reviews

"If young kids haven't already learned to exclaim 'Uh-oh' over some mishap, it's guaranteed they will after reading this entertaining romp.
"The action begins even before the title page, when a young dinosaur kicks a couch pillow. In slow motion, it crashes into the building blocks of his siblings, and a series of childhood accidents ensues. He jumps onto a flowerpot that spills; gets a broom to sweep it up but knocks over a gallon of milk; uses a throw rug to mop up the floor; puts the rug in the dishwasher to clean it. Of course, he oversoaps the machine and bubbles erupt, dishes are broken, water floods the floor so high that he grabs onto a broken shelf and floats out the window. He picks up the pieces and returns to the kitchen, where his parents are mopping up. As punishment, he is sent to sit in the corner. But — 'uh-oh' — he finds a stick of gum under the rug, and you guessed it, bubble gum has him covered in the pink, sticky stuff. Since the term 'uh-oh,' which is virtually the only text, appears only seven times, the humor relies on the lively watercolor illustrations to create the visual narrative. They comically animate each episode almost like cartoon strips."

In addition to her own books, Mary has illustrated 15 books for authors such as Margaret Read MacDonald, Eileen Spinelli, and Jan Wahl. Mary gives presentations abut the creative process in grades pre-K through high school, utilizing Visual Thinking Strategies. She has taught illustration at the college level, and is currently a Museum Teacher at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston MA.

She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and the Foundation for Children’s Books.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I challenged myself to tell an entertaining and dynamic story without words.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope children and adults will take the time to really observe the illustrations, and translate the pictures into their own words. It can be silly and fun to articulate with words what you see.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  The little dinosaur revealed himself to me through his actions, as I drew the various pictures. He has inadvertent mishaps, and tries to correct them as best he can. He is a stellar little guy, and I did not plan that ahead of time.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I love Ezra Jack Keats. His works are simple, beautiful, and empathetic.
