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 School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2. Preston Pig, from Suddenly! (1995) and Boo! (1996, both Harcourt), returns with his lupine sidekick to delight audiences once again. McNaughton has revamped "Little Red Riding Hood" with Preston's perfectly timed clumsiness and Mr. Wolf's forgetful memory. When the wolf observes the pig being sent off to visit Granny, he says, "Hmm...red hood, basket of food, Granny's house? That reminds me of a story, but which one?" He finally remembers his role and jumps through Grandma's window, ties her up, and pops Preston into a sack. As Mr. Wolf wonders about how the story ends, a turn of the page reveals Preston's father, holding a gleaming ax. The fast-paced text is sure to grab the attention of listeners. The oversized artwork, with its exaggerated features, is a feast for the eyes, bursting with a successful combination of fine detail and comic relief. Pair it with Lisa Campbell Ernst's Little Red Riding Hood: A Newfangled Prairie Tale (S & S, 1995), Ed Young's Lon Po Po (Philomel, 1989), and a traditional "Red" of your choice for a storytime that's sure to please.?Lisa Marie Gangemi, Sousa Elementary School, Port Washington, NY
