Read full description of the books Baby's First Book:Hildy would give it a 5, but I can't bring myself to mark it as perfect. Still, Williams really knows how to hit 'em where they live. The build starts with a china doll, then escalates with the sudden appearance of a kitty, a puppy, and balloons, then downshifts with a birthday cake and, quite anti-climactically, a paint set.
Still, a good time is had by all, and if the text doesn't quite reach the simplistic perfection of "Brown Bear," it still more than triumphs over Eric Carle's other work. You can fool all of the babies all of the time, seems to be Carle's hypothesis, as he attempts to dazzle the most virgin minds with the crudest of three-dimensional gimmickry. This would-be James Cameron of infant literature, this Pontius Pilate of innocent souls, this Benito Mussolini of the human spirit will one day pay for his bamboozlement of our most vulnerable citizenry. Carle -- the jig's up. You and your henchman Bill Martin Jr. will one day face a jury of parents and children whose consciousness will have finally been raised to see through your facade, into the very heart of your money-grubbing soul.
Read information about the authorGenerations of children picture their favorite fictional characters as drawn by Garth Williams. Thus the unforgettable dapper mouse, Stuart Little, or the kindhearted spider, Charlotte and her pig friend, Wilbur. And many other animals (bears, dogs, kittens, crickets) fantastic creatures (elves, fairies) and children and grown-ups in books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, George Selden, Charlotte Zolotow, Else H. Minarik and many others. Garth Williams was also the writer of seven children's books, like Baby Farm Animals, but it is primarily as an illustrator that he will always be remembered. His most controversial book was Rabbit's Wedding, written and illustrated by him in 1958, for it stirred racial issues.
