Bigger Words for Little Geniuses (Hardcover)
About the Author
Susan Solie Patterson has dreamed of writing and art directing a children's book since she received her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She wrote the New York Times bestselling Big Words for Little Geniuses and Cuddly Critters for Little Geniuses with her husband, James Patterson.
James Patterson is the world's bestselling author. The creator of Max Einstein and Middle School, he founded JIMMY Patterson to publish books that young readers will love. He lives in Florida with his family.
"Continuing the vocabulary-building they began in Big Words for Little Geniuses, the Pattersons focus here on creatures with names that beg to be sounded out and relished--from the "silly-looking aye-aye" to the "adorable" dumbo octopus, axolotl, and jerboa. Pan supplies stylized portraits in illustrations that are all bright colors and blobby shapes, as cheery as Matisse paper collages. ...This parade will give the next generation of Jane Goodalls and Roger Tory Petersons a leg up on some of the wild kingdom's more colorful (and sonorously named) residents."
