About the Author
George Shannon has loved books and cookies since he was too young to walk. His mother baked him cookies; both parents read him stories. As an adult George has written many books, and baked (and eaten) too many cookies to count. His favorite cookies to bake for friends are orange chocolate chip shortbread cookies. Picking a favorite cookie to eat is too hard!
Julie Paschkis is a painter and illustrator who makes her home in Seattle, Washington. She loves to make things: paintings, books, designs, and cookies. Her favorite cookie is a little nut cookie, and her favorite cookie name is "rugelach." She won a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor for Yellow Elephant, and her other acclaimed works include Vivid: Poems & Notes about Color and the bilingual book Flutter and Hum / Aleteo y Zumbido. Paschkis also illustrated the Worldwide Stories (Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal; First Light, First Life; and Fearsome Giant, Fearless Child) and several picture book biographies, among many others.
"Shannon and Paschkis provide a charming multicultural answer to the title question, creating in the process a confection that, while it may be most appreciated by socially conscious adults, will tempt young appetites as well." --Kirkus Reviews
"An appealing way to introduce the globalization of our food sources for the very young." --School Library Journal
"This simple package provides a thought-provoking and positive global concept of product development that can be explored on a variety of levels. A recipe for sugar cookies is included at the end." --The Horn Book
"Paschkis's (Apple Cake) mural-like spreads, with their warm colors and characters who exemplify a rock-solid work ethic and optimistic outlook, bring to mind a WPA aesthetic, with a little Lois Lenski and Virginia Lee Burton for good measure." --Publishers Weekly
"A hand dives into a cookie jar to pull out a treat. But how many hands were needed to put the cookie there in the first place? With a text as simple as the pictures are stylized, this is a charming look at the process." --Booklist
