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 School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2?Percy the park keeper is back, and this time he plans to spend the day tidying up the maze. Taking a ball of string to leave as a trail, he sets off with his squirrel friend, unaware that his other animal pals plan to surprise him by getting to the center first. Percy takes so long to complete his tasks, however, that the creatures fall asleep on a lion-shaped bench, and Percy plays a trick on them instead. It turns out that the joke is on all of them, though?the well-meaning squirrel has collected all the string, and they will have a difficult time finding their way out. The poem that preceeds the story foreshadows such a dilemma, and at the conclusion, readers are invited to help by choosing the right path on the large, fold-out maze attached to the back of the book. (It will be disappointing, of course, if previous readers have navigated their way out with crayon or pencil.) Butterworth's bright, watercolor cartoons depict mischievous, fun-loving animals set for a springtime caper. While this pleasant tale of friendship doesn't contain the drama of Percy's previous adventures, his fans will enjoy it. Suitable for reading aloud or lap time.?Marianne Saccardi, Norwalk Community-Technical College, CT
