About the Author:

Nick Butterworth was born in North London in 1946 and grew up in a sweet shop in Essex. He now lives in Suffolk with his wife Annette and they have two grown-up children, Ben and Amanda. The inspiration for the Percy the Park Keeper books came from Nick's many walks through the local park with the family dog Jake.

From Publishers Weekly:

This winsome quartet highlights a sextet of animals as they frolic and perform dubious domestic duties. The narrator here is joined on his appointed rounds by pals Whitey the polar bear, George the chimp, Millie the elephant, Wilson the giraffe and the more prosaically named (but no less beguiling) Croc and Hippo. Despite their good intentions, these critters occasionally lose sight of the task at hand, preferring instead to smother a snout in toothpaste ("Croc always cleans his teeth") or upset a grocery-store display ("Hippo likes spaghetti"). In crisply rendered illustrations against white backgrounds, Butterworth portrays a consistently amusing cast in one silly scenario after another. (Only literal-minded youngsters might question the relative sizes of creatures and human; why, for instance, is the giraffe smaller than the boy?) Cozy, reassuring and subtly instructive, these board books prove that many paws make light work. Ages 1-3.
