Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dawna Lisa Buchanan
Katie and her father discuss the Pilgrims and the Thanksgiving tradition while they wait for friends to come over, but they start to worry when the snow begins to fall heavily. Then Katie's mom discovers that the stove is not working. JoJo and Pedro call Katie from their car, where they are stuck and waiting for a tow truck. Katie and her dad go outside to shovel snow, and Katie decides to shovel the sidewalk for their neighbor, Mrs. West who has cooked a feast in anticipation of her own family's arrival. She is saddened when she learns the snow has caused flight delays. When JoJo and Pedro finally arrive, Katie invites Mrs. West (and her dinner) to their house for Thanksgiving. Three short chapters employ simple, repetitive language that will appeal to young readers, and Lyon's cheerful, watercolor cartoon images highlight the action in every page. End pages include notes and photos of both author and illustrator, a glossary, discussion questions, writing prompts, a simple recipe for "Pilgrim cookies," and an invitation to a website with more activities. The book would make a good holiday gift. It could also be shared during several short classroom lessons. Reviewer: Dawna Lisa Buchanan

There is a real Katie Woo — she's Fran's great-niece — but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved Mac computerin New York City, without the help of her two naughty cats, Chaim and Goldy.

Tammie Lyon began her love for drawing at a young age while sitting at the kitchen table with her dad. She continued her love of art and eventually attended The Columbus College of Art and Design, where she earned a Bachelors degree in Fine Art. After a brief career as a professional ballet dancer, she decided to devote herself full time to illustration. Today she lives with her husband, Lee, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her dogs, Gus and Dudley, keep her company as she works in her studio.
