Review:

'For Beaton, it really is a material world: she whips up bold, bright tableaux out of meticulously sewn felt... and embellishes the fuzzy fabric with judicious use of beads and sequins. Here, a smiling pink piggy coaxes the audiences through a rhyming series about different kinds of opposites, ending each vignette with the title question. The answer is revealed in the final spread, when the pig happily reunites with a sow whose girth spills off the pages: 'This pig is my mom and she's the biggest of all!' It's a sassy, unexpected wrap-up; Beaton will have her audience's attention all sewn up.' --Publishers Weekly

'Lovely illustrations with a gentle story in rhyme suitable for the very young.' --Irish Post

About the Author:

On good days, Stella Blackstone lives east of the sun and west of the moon. On less good days, she lives at the bottom of a well. She finds ideas in all of these places and turns them into songs, poems and rhymes. She has read and written poetry for as long as she can remember, and her favourite books include Louis Untermeyer?s A Child's Treasury of Poetry, which was a constant companion throughout her childhood, Paolo Coelho's The Alchemist, everything by T.S. Eliot, and William Buck's translation of The Ramayana. She lives in southwest England, and enjoys walking and working in her garden as well as doing nothing whenever she has the chance. Clare Beaton worked at the BBC for eight years, illustrating on many children's television programmes. She is now highly sought-after creator of handcrafted children's picture books. Clare has had nearly fifty books published, including One Moose, Twenty Mice (Barefoot Books, 1998) and Mother Goose Remembers (Barefoot Books, 2000), both of which have attracted considerable praise.
