Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
About this sequel to Leo the Late Bloomer, PW said, "Little Louie's earnest attempts to learn are just as endearing as Leo's attempts to bloom were in the original incarnation." Ages 4-8. (May) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This follow-up to Kraus's much-loved Leo the Late Bloomer is a cute tale in its own right, but will be most appreciated by young readers already familiar with Leo and his family. Now Leo is no longer a baby, and is instead a fine young tiger who enjoys playing with the neighborhood group and is slightly confused and even embarrassed by his young brother Louie's apparent lack of skills at ball playing, eating, even rattling his rattle. But most of all, Leo wishes Louie could talk. The bright, simple illustrations show big brother Leo gently trying to teach little Louie how to better get along in their world. Will Louie ever bloom? 1998, HarperTrophy, Ages 4 to 8, $15.89 and $5.95. Reviewer: Donna T. Brumby
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2--After 27 years as an only tiger, Leo the Late Bloomer finally has a sibling. Yet all is not ideal, at least not in his opinion. Louis, in an echo of his older sibling, just can't seem to do anything right. He can't throw a ball, pull a wagon, or even rattle his rattle. With wisdom gained in the previous story, his father reassures, "Little Louie will play with you in his own good time." Leo then decides to teach Louie instead of simply trying to play with him. Young readers will appreciate the engaging visual humor as the illustrations show the results of his attempts. A hilarious spaghetti scene aptly describes why "Leo decided not to teach Little Louis how to eat." Finally, in his own good time, Louis blossoms. Preschoolers eager for younger siblings to grow into suitable playmates will relate to Leo's plight. Improved printing techniques since Leo's first appearance render Dewey's colors even more brilliant than before. The lush jungle plants and animals are even more inviting to young eyes. This worthwhile continuation of the tiger family's story offers another heaping dose of reassurance. Great for group sharing or as an easy reader.--Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA

Meet the Author

Robert Kraus is the author of Little Louie the Baby Bloomer and Leo the Late Bloomer, illustrated by Jose Aruego, and the author and illustrator of dozens of books for children.

In His Own Words...

"Jose Aruego’s books for young readers have earned the applause of critics, teachers, librarians, and parents — as well as the affection of children everywhere. Mr. Aruego’s comic animals are immediately recognizable as they cavort through clear, vibrant landscapes, carrying out the action that the simple text has set in motion. It is a style one reviewer has termed “illustrative mime.”

"Jose Aruego was born in the Philippines, where he studied law and became a member of the Bar. But after practicing briefly, he decided to come to the United States to study graphic arts and advertising at Parsons School of Design in New York City. After graduation, he worked in adver-tising before taking up the demanding job of cartooning for The Saturday Evening Post, The New Yorker, Look, and other magazines. “Every Wednesday I would go to the cartoon editor with fifteen or sixteen drawings in hand, from which he might select one for publication. The tension was terrible, because selling cartoons was howI made my living. But I learned a lot from the rejected work, so it wasn’t a waste.

"The sink-or-swim experience of drawing cartoons was how I learned to make the most of a small amount of space.” Both abilities have helped him in his career as a children’s book author and illustrator, which he began with the publication of The King and His Friends in 1969.

"Although he is known for his amusing characters, Jose Aruego takes writing and drawing for chil-dren very seriously. After more than three dozen books he feels he is still learning his craft and getting to know his audience. “Each project teaches me something new and makes mea better artist. Each book brings me closer to children.” From the popularity and appeal of Jose Aruego's books, it is obvious that he has both the artistic skill and the imagination to reach the world of children. His work has a distinctive rhythm, and his humorous animal characters have a gaiety and playfulness that children adore.

"I have found from making appearances at schools that when kids draw for themselves, most of them like to make funny pictures. SoI show them how to draw an alligator. It’s a simple drawing and the teachers tell me that after my visit, Aruego alligators show up all over the school.”
