About the Author:

Pat Hutchins, one of seven children, was born in Yorkshire, England, and grew up in the surrounding countryside, which she still loves. At a very early age she knew that she wanted to be an artist and was encouraged by an elderly couple who would give her a chocolate bar for each picture she drew. A local art school offered her a scholarship and she studied there for three years, continuing her training at Leeds College of Art, where she specialized in illustration. Her career in the children's book field began with the highly acclaimed Rosie's Walk, a 1968 ALA Notable Book. Since then she has written five novels and created more than twenty-five picture books. She was awarded England's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in 1974 for The Wind Blew. Pat Hutchins lives with her husband in London, England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1?When Titch arrives at a party and doesn't find his friend Daisy among the guests, he refuses to participate in any of the activities. In fact, though, Daisy is in attendance, shyly hiding, wishing Titch were there. When the toddlers meet, they join in the festivities. Full-color gouache illustrations convey the lively setting and a pleasingly diverse set of party-goers. Ample use of white space into which the simple text is set makes the pages attractive and easy to share with young children. Curiously, Titch and Daisy seem to be distinctly younger than all of the other participants. This slight, winsome case of mistaken location focuses on the importance of friendship, but is not as compelling as Titch (Macmillan, 1971) and You'll Soon Grow into Them, Titch (Greenwillow, 1983). Nonetheless, this title will be welcomed by youngsters who follow Titch's growth and development.?Carolyn Noah, Central Mass. Regional Library System, Worcester, MA
