More About the Author

AUDREY WOOD is the much-loved author of more than thirty books for children, including the bestselling The Napping House, Piggies, Heckedy Peg, and most recently, Piggy Pie Po, which she collaborated on with her husband, Don Wood.
She lives in Hawaii.

My first memories are of Sarasota, Florida in the winter quarters of the Ringling Brothers' Circus. I was one year old and remember it vividly. My father, an art student, was making extra income by repainting circus murals.

The people in the circus were my friends. I was bounced on the knee of the tallest man in the world and rocked in the arms of the fat lady who could not stand up. My first baby-sitters were a family of little people who lived in a trailer next to ours. They tAudrey2old me stories about the animals they worked with: Chi Chi the Chimpanzee, an elephant named Elder, and Gargantua the Gorilla.

My mother says I was a fast learner, always ahead of my age. My father taught me to swim before I could walk. I walked at seven months and climbed over a seven foot chain link fence when I was one year old. Everyone in the circus thought I was going to be a trapeze artist.

When I was two, I traveled with my parents to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where they studied art. Spanish became my second language. Because my mother read to me every day, I fell in love with books and was reading by age three.

My parents had two more girls, which made me the oldest sister. All of us were trained in the arts: music, dance, painting, and drama. We had a miniature stage in our basement, complete with light-bulb floodlights and a dusty red velvet curtain. Admission for the plays we produced was a bargain--twenty-five cents.

When I was in the first grade, I wanted to grow up to be an artist like my father. Then, in the fourth grade, I decided I'd like to be a children's book author. As an adult who writes and illustrates children's books, I have realized both my childhood ambitions.

I got in trouble in school once for crossing out my favorite author's name and putting in mine--Audrey Brewer instead of Dr. Seuss!

My great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all professional artists. Since I am also a professional artist, there are four consecutive generations of artists in our family. However, I am the only female artist.

On our honeymoon, I read my new husband Don Wood the classic children's book entitled At the Back of the North Wind. Seven years later, we teamed up to create our first picture book together.

When our son Bruce Robert was two years old, I began to read picture books to him. He helped to remind me of my childhood ambitions. That's when I began to write children's books seriously.

Format: Paperback
My toddler son loves this book - it is his favourite. I'm not sure why amazon has it's reading level labelled as being 9 - 12 years, as it is truely a 'reading to' picture book that the children follow along. In New Zealand the English version of this book is highly reccomended for parents of 1 year olds and over.
I really like how the book uses similies ('I'm quick as a cricket') to describe each charcteristic a child may have. The pictures really fit each description well, clearly showing the emotion on the childs face in almost every case.

My Spanish speaking children loved that they had access to the same book that we had in English. I use this book to teach children similes. My children were delighted! The illustrations are beautiful. It is simple and straight forward and easy to learn similes from. Veloz como el grillo

My 1.5 year old loves this book, I love it too because it's simple to read, great illustrations, not too many words perfect for her age since she keeps on turning the page too fast.

The book is excellent for teaching similes in Spanish. The illustrations are excellent. My 4 year-old son loves how the boy is shown in each illustration, acting as the animals.
