Max and Ruby have their own TV show on Nick Jr.!
Rosemary Wells’ career as an author and illustrator spans more than 40 years and 120 books. She has won numerous awards, and she has given readers such unforgettable characters as Max and Ruby, Noisy Nora, and Yoko. She has also given Mother Goose new life in two definitive editions and created an unforgettable world for grown-ups and kids alike in Voyage to the Bunny Planet. Her recent book, Hand in Hand, is meant to give a lift to Parents at Risk, who rarely see poetry or beautiful pictures.
Rosemary Wells was born in New York City and raised on the New Jersey shore. She grew up in a home that was always filled with books, dogs, classical music, and other things her parents held in great esteem.
At two years old Rosemary began to draw. When she was not outdoors, she was always drawing. At nineteen, she attended Boston Museum School. Rosemary worked seven years in publishing before her first book was published in 1968, an illustrated edition of Gilbert and Sullivan’s A Song to Sing, O!
Speaking about her youth, Rosemary recalls, “New Jersey was farm country, and I spent much of my time outdoors, running around the woods behind our house and playing baseball with the neighbors’ kids. I spent a lot of time with animals, horses, and dogs. My grandmother took me on special trips to the theater and museums in New York City. I was born during a golden age of childhood in our country’s history. And I was lucky because my parents were happy and they supported all that I wanted to do. They had both been in the theater and understood the arts from the inside. We had a houseful of wonderful books. Reading stories aloud was as much a part of my childhood as the air I breathed.”
It's Grandma's birthday, and Max wants to make her an icky, worm-infested cake. But Ruby says, "No, Max. We are going to make Grandma an angel surprise cake, with raspberry-fluff icing." Will Max let his bossy older sister keep him out of the kitchen? Or will they both become bunnies who bake?
A poetic celebration of the quiet love that gives each one of us the strength to succeed. No dream too big. No goal too great. With love and support anything is possible.
It's tough being the middle mouse. No one's paying any attention to Nora, so she decides to do something her family can't ignore: make noise. Nora slams windows, bangs doors, and upsets furniture, to no avail. It's not until she crashes out the door--and the house goes strangely silent--that her family realizes: a noisy Nora is much better than no Nora at all."A wonderful story." --Booklist
