Sobre l'autor

Martha Alexander was born in 1920 in Georgia. She attended the Cincinnati Academy of Art, and lived in many places, including New York, Alaska, and Washington state, before settling in Honolulu, Hawaii. Alexander was an artist since childhood, trying her hand at ceramics, doll making, fabric and mostra'n més clothing design, portrait painting, children's murals and paintings, decorative collages and mosaics, and teaching art to adults and children. She said after attending the Cincinnati Academy of Art, that she did not find her niche in the art world until, at the age of forty-five, she was given her first children's book to illustrate. She knew then that her long search for the right medium of expression had been more than justified. Alexander was an author and an illustrator of children's books that dealt mostly with what it's like to grow up. Martha Alexander wrote and illustrated the Blackboard Bear books and has written and illustrated a host of books for children. She died in 2006. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

While Blackboard Bear is s chalk drawing who comes down from a blackboard, when he and Anthony run away from home, he does all the things a real bear would do, like eating honey from a hive and still-wiggling trout and sleeping in a dark cave with bats. Blackboard Bear leaves Anthony outside the windowsill they climbed out of; no, I don't know what happened to him after that.
Nicely drawn and told, mostly as Anthony's part of a dialog with his teddy bear and Blackboard Bear.

A little boy does not like all the attention that his new baby sister is getting, so he decides he is going to get rid of her. Nobody seems to want the baby, but the little boy is determined. Eventually he comes to see that the new baby isn’t so bad after all. The story is good to read for children experiencing jealousy towards new siblings or to prepare children who are about to be new siblings. The story is humorous and very simple for children of young ages. The illustrations look a little dated, but overall the story is good.… (més)
