Artist Stacey Dressen-McQueen provided the drawings. Dressen-McQueen has provided art work for at least one award winning book, which makes her a winner for me. She has her own style which I found both authentic and charming.
Listen to the pace of Lowell's prose in this sample sentence. "So off we go, slow as molasses, till late one afternoon, clouds puff up from little lambs to terrible rumblings herds of ....elephants!" I live in the basin of the Gila River and I can attest that in summer afternoons the sky indeed changes from fluffy to terrible, and quickly.
I found this to be absolutely a superior book for children in all respects.
