Colin McNaughton was born in Northumberland and had his first book published while he was still at college. He is now one of Britain's most highly acclaimed authors and illustrators of children's books and a winner of many prestigious awards, including the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award in 1991.From Booklist:
Ages 4-6. Preston Pig makes another appearance, once again dogged by the tenacious Mr. Wolf. Preston and his parents head off for a week at the beach, where Preston literally bumps into a little porker named Maxine. When Preston says his nose hurts, Max "kisses it better." So starts a fabulous friendship that sees the two of them surfing and sunning, with a playful subtext: Will Max kiss Preston's nose again? Meanwhile, Mr. Wolf lurks in the background, trying to have a little fun and grab some pork. The sunny art with plenty of ocean greens and skies of blues has immediate appeal, as does the sweet, silly text. Unlike McNaughton's previous books, this one puts Mr. Wolf's shenanigans behind the main action, so it will take slightly older children to appreciate the simultaneous stories as well as the many asides that appear as balloon text. Fans of Preston will certainly be pleased. Ilene Cooper
