About the Author

Karen Blair grew up in Perth, Australia. She made her first picture book for a school project when she was nine, and by the time she was in her twenties and living in the U.K., she knew it was her dream to continue. Karen Blair now lives in Fremantle, Australia, with her husband and two cats and works part-time as an elementary-school art teacher.


[A] sweet Australian import... Blair, whose watercolors will appeal to fans of Helen Oxenbury, has a keen eye for toddlers' expressions and gestures, making this book as much about the appeal of young humans as young animals.
--The New York Times

Blair's Helen Oxenbury-like crayon-and-watercolor double-page spreads and vignettes capture the endearing tots' enthusiasm and energy. The baby critters are equally cute and cuddly in the art's soft colors. [T]he picnic scene is ... entirely engaging; Blair captures posture, balance and grasping hands deftly. This title is perfectly age-appropriate, with the right number of pages and just enough text for the intended audience. Here's hoping these youngsters step out for another adventure very soon.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Delicate crayon-and-watercolor portraits and a bevy of animal noises make for a gentle, rewarding trip to the farm.
