About the Author
Praise For Where's My T-R-U-C-K?…
* "Readers are in for a very funny encounter with a memorable personality. Catrow doesn't let a single spread go to waste."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Catrow's colorfully frenetic artwork and Beaumont's flawlessly rhyming text will have children chanting along . . . . By the end, readers will definitely know how to spell 'truck'[and] they will definitely recognize themselves in Tommy."
-New York Times Sunday Book Review
"Anyone who's ever interacted with a young child who's lost a favorite toy will immediately recognize this little boy and his single-mindedness in searching for his t-r-u-c-k."
"Beaumont's refrain promises that listeners will know how to spell 'truck' by tale's end and is perfectly paced for expressive pauses and exclamations. Catrow's jam-packed pencil and watercolor scenes are masterworks of detail and humor. This is definitely a 'read it again' book."
-School Library Journal
“Sharp-eyed viewers might guess who’s responsible for the truck’s disappearance before the mystery is solved, but knowing whodunit doesn’t detract from the fun. In fact, the pictures are just as, if not more, entertaining on subsequent readings.”
“Beaumont’s rhymes are consistently pleasurable . . . . Just as big an attraction, though, are Catrow’s wild, undulating . . . illustrations.”
