Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Whose Nose and Toes? joins John Butler's q&a-style titles (e.g., Whose Baby Am I?) with visual clues and detailed, anthropomorphic animal portraits against a pastel backdrop. The titular question repeats on each spread, next to a picture of the corresponding features for 10 different baby animals. The answer follows on the next page, along with a full depiction of each creature. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This picture book has a simple premise: the title question is repeated next to the partial nose and toes of a particular animal (nicely bleeding over the page edge.) For the answer, turn the page and see the animal in all its glory. The repetitive nature of the exercise should delight very young children, as should the quite elegant rendering of the creatures in pastel crayons. It is a pleasure to see the fine work of an old school master of realism turn up in a book for this age group. This reader's only quibble is calling the obvious duckling a duck—and the non gender-specific calf a cow. But a toddler is not likely to split straws over the issue. Overall, it is a fine book. 2004, Viking, Ages 2 to 5.
