Sobre l'autor

Eileen Christelow was born in Washington, D.C., on April 22, 1943. As a child, books were a huge part of Christelow's life: they were always presents for her birthday and Christmas, as well as when she was sick. Much of her childhood was spent reading and rereading them. In high school, Christelow mostra'n més wrote stories for the school magazine, and planned on majoring in English in college. Instead, when Christelow entered her freshman year at college she became interested in art history and eventually found her true passion in photography. Christelow received her B.A. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1965, and soon after she began photographing buildings for architects and shooting photo essays on urban life for small magazines. While earning a living as a photographer and graphic designer, Christelow began experimenting with writing and illustrating children's picture books. Her first published book, Henry and the Red Stripes, was inspired by a poster she created for a science museum. Many of Christelow's books, including Don't Wake Up Mama!, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, and Henry and the Dragon, have been named Children's Choice Books of the Year by the Children's Book Council and the International Reading Association. A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Christelow has published over a dozen books and her photographs have appeared in publications such as Home, Progressive Architecture, and the New York Times Book Review.

Narrative text describes robins' migration and nesting habits, while a pair of young robins (you can tell by their speckles) chime in with speech bubbles. Comics panels effectively use sequential art (e.g. a nest being built, an egg hatching), and the layout of each page is dynamic and easy to follow. The story follows the baby birds' life through the first weeks and months, describing what they eat, the dangers they face, and how they learn to fly.

Realistic born-digital illustrations show robins at every stage (egg, baby, fledgling, adult) and their environments.

Back matter includes an author's note, glossary, "more about robins" in Q&A format, and sources. Well researched and beautifully presented; on the longer side, best for older readers (not toddlers).

Jerome the Alligator returns in this second picture book devoted to his adventures, following upon Jerome the Babysitter, once again determined to make a go of his babysitting. Although it is Halloween night, Jerome is busy working on posters advertising his services, and is not tempted in the slightest by his sister Winifred and her friend Lulu's advice that he come trick-or-treating. When he receives a message instructing him to go to the old yellow house on the edge of the swamp, in order to babysit Mrs. Witchcraft's two children, he is somewhat puzzled, as he thought the house deserted, but sets out regardless. What follows is the creepiest babysitting job ever, watching over the witchy Lucy and Lucifer, while keeping a mindful ear on the ghost upstairs. But is all as it seems...?

The answer to that should be obvious to attentive readers, both from Winifred's suspicious behavior just before leaving the house, and by some of the sly looks exchanged by Lucy and Lucifer in the illustrations, but the story in Jerome and the Witchcraft Kids is entertaining, for all that. Between the spooky shenanigans that go on in the yellow house, and the eventual reveal that it is all a prank being played by Winifred, Lulu and Lulu's siblings, not to mention the colorful, expressive artwork, this would make a good selection for a Halloween story-hour. Although slightly disappointed to find that the witchy content wasn't what I expected—in truth, I sought this book and its predecessor out precisely because of the witchy content—I still enjoyed the visuals of little alligators in witch gear. This is one I would recommend to picture book readers looking for Halloween stories that are one part scary and one part funny. Those who, like me, prefer their witches to be real, are also recommended to seek out Byron Barton's Hester, the story of another alligator at Halloween time.
