About the Author:

Monica Wellington was born in London and lived in Europe until she moved tothe United States at age seven. As a child she always loved to draw andpaint, but it wasn't until she went to college that she realized she wantedto be an artist for her profession. She went to the University of Michigan'sSchool of Art to earn her BFA and studied pottery, painting and printmaking.After art school, while traveling and living in a number of differentcountries, she had various art related jobs, which were all good backgroundand preparation for doing children's books.She has both written and illustrated the majority of her books. She says,"I usually start a book visually, with an idea of what I want to paintpictures about. The pictures may come first before the words for me. Boththe pictures and words go through many revisions, and I am often stillworking on the final words after I finish the pictures."She says that doing children?s books is great. "I get to have a job where Ispend my days doing totally what I love to do. And it is very gratifyingthat my work goes out into the world and is shared with other people. Ifeel incrediably lucky for all this!"Since 1994 she has taught illustration at the School of Visual Arts. Shelives in New York City with her daughter Lydia.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-- For many youngsters, cookies come only in packages or boxes. This book explains the process of baking them. It shows a baker's day, from setting out raw ingredients to closing the door once everything is sold. For each double-paged spread, one brief sentence describes the process: "He mixes the cookie dough" stands for measuring, mixing, creaming, beating, and stirring. Without a doubt, this is a happy baker. He smiles as he reads his recipe; while removing baking sheets full of browned cookies from the oven, he licks his lips. The illustrations, done in gouache and colored pencils, perfectly match the informational and emotional levels in this book; the uncluttered shapes resemble those produced by cookie cutters. The man's features, as well as those of his happy customers, could have been drawn with icing. Warm clear corals, oranges, and yellows predominate. Ingredients, utensils, decorated cookies, even money and glasses, pitchers and cartons of milk dance on the decorative borders and cheerful endpapers. This is an ideal book to use with toddlers and preschoolers. Beware! It's guaranteed to cause a demand for cookies. Of course, a detailed recipe follows the story. --Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
